Normani's new video is for anyone who spent their summer holidays watching music videos on TV and practising the dance routines until they were second nature. "Motivation" is an instantly-lovable bop with a video that pays homage to everyone from 3LW, J. Lo, Rihanna, and "Crazy In Love"-era Beyoncé. Check it out above.

The song was co-written by Ariana Grande, who tweeted that her "cheeks hurt from smiling" after watching the video. Same Ari, same.
