Both collaborations consecutively won her iHeartRadio Music Award’s “Titanium Award.” Her single “Waves” featuring 6lack earned Normani her first solo win at the MTV VMAs for “Best R&B Video.” She’s also garnered numerous nominations throughout the years from award shows such as Billboard Music Awards, Soul Train Music Awards, NAACP Image Awards, People’s Choice Awards and more.
