Normani has released '1:59' with Gunna and confirmed her debut solo album, 'Dopamine', is out on June 14.

The former Fifth Harmony star has given fans the first taste of her upcoming LP, and finally given them a release date that is not too far away.

Normani has promised fans that the new music will be worth the wait.

She told Who What Wear in February: "I know what I’ve been through. For me, this upcoming album is not just about music coming out. It feels like a representation of everything I’ve gone through to get to this moment… I know I needed time, experiences, and space coming out of [Fifth Harmony] in order to become the version of myself I needed to be. Without [all of that], I would not be able to exist within the creative space that I am in now. I would not be able to make the type of music I’m making now."

Fifth Harmony split in 2018 and Normani released her first solo single, 'Motivation' in August 2019.

She went on to release songs including 'Diamonds,' 'Bad to You,' 'Wild Side,' 'Fair,' and 'New to You' but 'Dopamine' is her first full-length project solo.

Last August, the 27-year-old star joined a new management company, after she parted ways with S10 Entertainment’s Brandon Silverstein in May.

A representative for the star told Rolling Stone: “With new music on the horizon, and Asrat and Creed now at the helm of her musical career, she and the rest of her team are extremely excited to embark on this new chapter and partnership.

“She wishes Silverstein all the best.”

The singer previously vowed not to release her new album until she felt ready.

Normani explained on the 'Today' show: "Everybody says, 'Oh, well, she should've dropped her album during 'Motivation', which to everybody from an outside perspective seemed like the perfect time. But for me, I was just coming out of the group and I needed to figure out what I wanted my sound to sound like."

By taking her time, she's been able to work out what's important to her.

She explained: "I needed to figure out what I wanted to talk about and what was important to me. And I've had the time to do that. So this will really be an introduction to who I really am."
