Normani‘s Dopamine has topped this week’s new music poll that features artists in various genres of music.

Music fans voted in a poll published Friday (June 14) on Billboard, choosing the former Fifth Harmony member’s debut solo album as their favorite new music release of the past week.

Dopamine brought in 74% of the vote on the poll, securing a notable edge ahead of new releases from NxWorries (Why Lawd?), Pharrell (“Double Life”), Don Toliver (Hardstone Psycho), Luke Combs (Fathers and Sons), and others.

After years of teasing that her debut album was on its way, Dopamine arrived on Friday (June 14) through RCA Records, complete with collaborations from Gunna, Cardi B, James Blake and more. Led by singles “Wild Side” with Cardi B and “1:59” with Gunna, the 13-track effort means that the 28-year-old New Orleans singer is finally in the fray after years of waiting on the sidelines.

“I’m just grateful that everybody is just really excited still for this album and for this body of work. They’ve waited on me, which I don’t really take for granted,” Normani told Billboard News‘ Tetris Kelly.

Since going solo, Normani has hit the Billboard Hot 100 chart four times with the songs “Love Lies” with Khalid and “Dancing With A Stranger” with Sam Smith each reaching the top 10. Released in 2021, her lead single “Wild Side” featuring Cardi B charted as well, peaking at No.14 and staying on the chart for 20 weeks.

Trailing behind Dopamine on this week’s poll is NxWorries’ second album, Why Lawd?, with 8% of the vote. NxWorries is the superduo featuring R&B critics’ darling Anderson .Paak and underground favorite hip-hop producer Knxwledge.
