All The Iconic Fashion References From Thee Stallion’s ‘Diamonds’ Video You May Have Missed.
Normani, in particular, isn’t new to throwing references in her music videos. The singer shook the world with her music video for “Motivation” which amassed almost 80 million views. It included tributes to Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, and more. And in this music video, the references start from the first verse.
Normani And Megan Thee Stallion Diamonds video
In the video above, Megan Thee Stallion and Normani deliver Harley Quinn on a baseball-bat-assisted-rampage energy, alongside a homage to Marilyn Monroe’s iconic role in “Gentleman Prefer Blondes,” mirroring Margot Robbie in the first Birds of Prey trailer. Watch the video up top.
Ever since the video dropped, social media has been exploding with enthusiasm for both artists.
Both stars show their stuff on “Diamonds”: the high-energy track is a perfect fit for Megan’s razor-sharp flow, while Normani gracefully interpolates Marilyn Monroe’s “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” in the melody.
The duo joins a long list of artists—including Halsey, Doja Cat, Summer Walker, Charlotte Lawrence, and more—who are releasing original music through Birds of Prey: The Album, which debuts on February 7, the same day the movie hits theaters.
