April 26, 2024 (Los Angeles, CA) – Singer-songwriter Normani unveils her new single “1:59,” featuring Gunna via RCA Records. The single comes on the heels of the announcement of her long-awaited and highly anticipated debut album DOPAMINE, slated to release on June 14 on all major streaming platforms. The album’s pre-save link can be found at

“1:59” seductively unfolds over smooth guitar melodies as Normani addresses a potential paramour, provocatively pondering their intimate possibilities. With its suggestive lyrics and infectious rhythm, the track exudes an undeniable allure. The record encapsulates Normani’s journey of embracing her divine femininity, blending sensuality with dominance in a way that feels authentic and empowering.

The chorus teases, “When I get you alone, boy, what you gon’ do with this? Don’t talk too much, just do this sh*t. Boy, what you gon’ do with this?” Gunna’s verse adds another layer of intrigue as he confidently asserts, “I can tell your type ’cause you gon’ like the things I do.” “1:59” ventures into a different pocket for Gunna, delivering a more R&B-infused record that highlights his versatility while retaining his core essence. 

Since stepping into the spotlight as a solo artist in 2018, Normani has mesmerized audiences with a series of chart-topping singles. Noteworthy among these are collaborations such as “Dancing With a Stranger” with Sam Smith and “Love Lies” with Khalid, both of which soared into the top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, charting at No. 7 and No. 9, respectively. Additionally, “Motivation” and “Wild Side” featuring Cardi B have charted the Hot 100, peaking at No. 33 and No. 14, respectively. 

Normani’s upcoming album DOPAMINE represents a season of liberation and freedom, celebrating her journey to this pivotal moment.
