Normani is giving a new name to "Motivation" after being unveiled in the latest promotional photos for Rihanna's Savage X Fenty lingerie brand. The 23-year-old Fifth Harmony alum has been slaying like it's her middle name since bursting onto the scene with sultry singles like "Love Lies" and "Waves". And she's also been turning heads with high-energy well-choreographed performances.

Her sex appeal truly shines in whatever lane she chooses to drive in. So it came as a surprise to no one when she first started working for Rihanna's sought-after brand.

The starlet sizzles in a black one-piece garment that emphasizes her curves while still leaving a lot to the imagination. In the photos, she accessorizes the look with long, above-the-elbow black gloves and a flower crown, exhibiting the fact that sexy can be demure too.

The lingerie piece is a part of the "super sexy" Flock-U-Up collection designed by Adam Selman. Normani not only modeled the piece for a series of promotional photos, she also had a hand in curating the month's Xtra VIP Box.

Normani first aligned with Savage during their September 2019 runway show when the starlet performed in a dazzling set that was peak savage. Shortly after, she was crowned the lingerie company's first-ever brand ambassador, and it was lit.

In the November 2019 interview with Vogue, when asked how she felt about being given the coveted honor, she said: "I was very excited and really honored, especially that the ask came from Rihanna herself. I know that this is her passion project, something she genuinely and wholeheartedly believes in and cares about, and the fact that she wanted me to be a part of that meant a lot to me.

"She is somebody I’ve looked up to for a very, very long time. She’s had so much influence on me in terms of pop culture and as a woman, but also in terms of how she’s able to do things gracefully while being cutting edge, being bold, pushing the needle, and changing the narrative," Normani added.

"I think that being a part of Savage X Fenty is an amazing opportunity for me to show women that I’m also here for them too. I love how inclusive the brand is. Being a part of the show and being able to have the opportunity to dance and do what I love was so powerful," she continued to the publication.

"It was great to be among so many amazing human beings who deserve to be celebrated because they’re all beautiful—all shapes, all sizes. The show represented everybody. I just love how inclusive [the brand] is and how it gives everybody the opportunity to feel sexy and beautiful and empowered—which is everything that I stand for as well. I thought it would be the perfect partnership."

Normani might have chosen this subtle but sexy head-turner by Adam Selman as one of her favorite looks for the month, but she has also shared that she was a fan of Savage's most recent holiday collection and has an eye for red.

"I think that is actually one of my favorites," she began. "Also the pieces that I wore in the show. Her bras—I am a heavy-chested girl and that’s the only reason I was able to go 110%, because I felt supported and I didn’t feel like I was going to come out of everything. Everything is very, very durable, and you can tell that Rih herself and also the Savage team takes time out to make sure it’s the best quality possible."

Quite possibly the singer's favorite thing about being a Savage girl is the fact that it matches up with some of her own personal philosophies, including the fact that sexy can look and feel different for everyone, and it's important to cater to that. "I feel like it’s not about having to conform and fit whatever the standard definition of sexy is. Rih does a really amazing job of making it universal and having something in the collection for everybody, even down to the way the bra cuts you."

She continued, "I have a hard time, like I said, walking into any store and finding something that I feel comfortable in, but also sexy in, and something that I can also wear all day. I feel like she has done that with Savage X, for sure."
