After releasing “Dancing With a Stranger” alongside Sam Smith, Normani released not one, but two teasers to prepare her global fan base for her newest single “Motivation.” The rollout for the New Orleans-bred singer’s latest song was headlined by an exciting music video that is packed with plenty of nostalgia-infused moments. If you’re a child of the ’90s and ’00s, it came as no surprise that Normani payed homage to Beyoncé and Britney Spears, two of the biggest artists of the aughts.

Since we’re obsessing over Normani’s trendy looks styled by Maeve Reilly from the visual, we’ve decided to hunt down similar pieces if you’d like to copy her style. We’ve broken down the outfits by their appearance in the music video. Everything from graphic-heavy separates, basic white tees and flared denim is shoppable below. Keep scrolling to get your nostalgic fix.

Donning a white cropped top and eccentric jeans, Normani begins the video channeling Beyoncé. Besides the similar outfit, she also pays tribute to Bey by nailing the iconic hair flip and spin from her “Crazy in Love” video. You can get the look too with tops by Rag & Bone and The Line By K. Cop jeans by RE/DONE to top off the sexy, summer-friendly ‘fit.

If you’re like us, you’ve probably noticed the blatant Britney Spears “Baby One More Time” references in the video. Normani’s dance moves during the basketball scene pointed to this: backflips and of-the-moment group sequences.

If you want to look like a modern Britney in pink and white, look to Vetements‘ logo sports bra and a pair of Alexander Wang biker shorts. You can also style Fendi‘s cycling shorts with an Adam Selman Sport neon top. The exact sneakers she wore were the Air Jordan XI Retro Low in “White/Pink.”

Black Crop Top + Leather Pants

The trailblazing pop singer also donned an all-black outfit that caught our attention. It consisted of a crop top, leather trousers and matching trainers. Copy this look by picking up Alaïa‘s leather bustier or Miu Miu‘s embellished top. You can wear these with either Helmut Lang‘s patent leather trousers or similar pants from Balenciaga. Lastly, throw on the Air Jordan XII Retro in “Black/White.”
