Joining other artists who have used their voice to portray their frustration and overall exhaustion with being black in America, H.E.R. took to iHeart Radio’s Living Room Concert Series to debut a new song.
Backed by a live band for her 45-minute performance, H.E.R. kicked things off with an acoustic rendition of an unreleased song, “I Can’t Breathe.” Before debuting the song, H.E.R. shared a message with fans about the song.
“These lyrics were kind of easy to write because it came from a conversation of what’s happening right now, what’s been happening, and the change that we need to see. I think music is powerful when it comes to change and when it comes to healing and that’s why I wrote this song, to make a mark in history. And I hope this song does that.”
