This young R&B/Soul singer-songwriter’s identity may be unknown, but that has not stopped H.E.R. from hitting the charts.
The faceless artist prefers to keep the focus on her music instead of herself. This allows listeners to indulge on the sounds of her gorgeous, velvety voice alone as they play with the different shades of love and heartbreak, as well as touching upon familiar insecurities and self-empowerment.
In her debut EP, she told Rolling Stone earlier this year in March, “This project came from an emotion, and that’s what I want it to be about - not what I look like or who I’m with, but the raw emotion and support for women.”
With the arrival of H.E.R. Vol. 2. This summer, she talked about the innovation behind the new music to the L.A. Times during her first face-to-face interview. “Everything was a lot more optimistic and a lot more fun. Still very vibey, still very emotional, but just in different ways.”
H.E.R has up to 1.7 million monthly listeners on Spotify and her debut project H.E.R. Vol. 1 reached No. 1 on the iTunes R&B chart. For fans of songs that put you on an emotional rollercoaster, I suggest that you listen to her latest 8-track EP H.E.R. Vol.2.
