Bringing all the Black Girl Magic into the Power 106 Studios, H.E.R. stopped through to chat with Bryhana about her recent Coachella performance, all the new music she has on the way, what her recording her process is like and even shares why she doesn’t follow anyone on social media.
As the “Focus” singer just wrapped up her appearance at Coachella, H.E.R. details debuting a new single at the Indio-based festival. “It was cool. It’s always scary kind of premiering new music but it’s something I really heavily.” She continues saying, “I just wrote the song a few weeks ago, so, it’s something that’s been on my mind and on my heart but I felt the need to share it and that’s really where I was at. It wasn’t so much of a reaction thing but just alright, I’m just giving this because I need to.”
Speaking on the special moment when she discovered that she was nominated for five Grammys this past award season, the R&B singer shared that she found out about her five nominations while on tour and was shocked by The Academy recognizing her work as well as being shocked how her manager decided to tell her the Grammy news. While, H.E.R. walked away with two statutes during her first Grammy appearance, she also performed “Hard Place” during the live event .
While fans continue to await new music from the all-around musician, H.E.R. shares with Bryhana she is looking forward to possible collaborations, one being with the Motown legend Stevie Wonder as well as hopes to possibly work with Dreamville honcho J. Cole one day.
I probably want to do like old and new. I want to work with Stevie Wonder really badly. That conversation is happening, you know. So, you never know. J. Cole is super dope. I mean, I don’t know, there’s a lot of people, maybe Janet, you know. There’s a lot of artists that I really admire that I think would be a dope collaboration.
H.E.R. goes on to talk family time in the Bay, the classic collab “Best Part” with Daniel Caeser, shares her experience meeting Janet Jackson, and her perspective on social media.
