Normani is in her lover girl era.

Speaking with Rolling Stone in an interview released Wednesday, June 5, about the highly anticipated release of her debut album Dopamine, the former Fifth Harmony member got candid about her relationship with DeKaylin "DK" Metcalf.

"I’m happy. I am very happy. Definitely an answered prayer," Normani, 28, told the outlet.

"I’ve experienced a lot with relationships," she continued. "I’m a real lover girl. I wear my heart on my sleeve, and finding space where that’s reciprocated feels good. I like to see myself happy. I really do."

The Seattle Seahawks wide receiver, 26, even "inspired a few [songs on the album]," she said.

The "Wild Side" performer made her relationship with the NFL star Instagram official in July 2023.

In the Instagram Story post, Normani and Metcalf were all dressed up to attend Seahawks player Tyler Lockett's wedding together.

Romance rumors were first sparked between the singer and Metcalf in June 2022 when they were spotted having dinner at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, California.

In a May interview with Essence, Normani revealed that her good friend Ciara played cupid in her relationship.

“She’s the one that did set me and my man up,” she told the outlet.

In her conversation with Rolling Stone, Normani opened up about feeling anxious ahead of the June 14 release of Dopamine.

"Honestly, just the pressures of the wait and hoping that everybody loves this body of work as much as I love it," she explained. "I’m still listening to things again for the hundredth time to make sure there are no extra harmonies that I want to put in a section, or a lyric that I might want to change. I want to know that I put in absolutely everything that I could, that I exhausted every possibility."

Ultimately, she hopes fans gather that she's "f---ing strong despite everything I've endured" from the album.

"It’s a testament to my strength and my resilience and my discipline," she said. "I’m a lot more sure of myself, a lot more comfortable. I’ve done a really good job at navigating and getting back to who I am and recognizing the beauty. I’m trusting myself a lot more."
