After reinventing herself as a quasi-mysterious, multi-talented singer/songwriter who hid behind extra-large shades, H.E.R. has gone one to become one of the most successful and popular newcomers of her generation. Recently notching Grammy and Oscar wins back-to-back, she has finally released her formal debut album Back Of My Mind.
“Back of My Mind is accepting the vulnerability—being able to quiet the noise around me and listen to my own voice,” H.E.R. says about the project. “It’s the many layers that make me, me. It’s all of the things that we’re kind of afraid to share, afraid to say, afraid to do.”
A 21-song effort (there is a special edition of the album on Apple Music), the album is led by the singles “Come Through,” “Damage,” “We Made It,” “Slide,” and “Hold On.” Meanwhile the likes of Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign, Cordae, Lil Baby, Thundercat, Yung Bleu, YG, DJ Khaled, and Bryson Tiller make appearances throughout.
