In 2018, Grammys.com declared, “The musical sensation is changing how we hear – and feel – music with her talent, vision and mystique,” and H.E.R. has proven them right in 2019 by earning two Grammy Awards for Best R&B Album (H.E.R.) and Best R&B Performance (“Best Part” featuring Daniel Caesar). With over two billion combined streams to date, the release of the breakthrough H.E.R. and the recent release of I Used To Know Her and the track “Slide” featuring YG, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist H.E.R. has firmly established herself as one of modern music’s most fascinating new voices.
H.E.R. Vol. 1 peaked at #1 on the iTunes R&B/Soul Albums chart upon its release and H.E.R. Vol. 2 saw the same trajectory, resulting in two EPs within the Top 5 at the same time. I Used To Know Her: The Prelude, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top R&B Albums chart, while fan favorites “Focus,” and “Best Part” earned the #1 slot on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs Airplay chart and Urban Adult Contemporary chart, respectively. H.E.R. won two 2018 Soul Train Music Awards for Album/Mixtape of the Year for H.E.R. and Best Collaboration Performance “Best Part” feat. Daniel Caesar.
In September 2019, H.E.R. and producer partner Live Nation Urban had the first-ever Lights On Festival, which sold out within minutes of going on-sale, at the Concord Pavilion in Concord, CA. This is notably the first female owned and curated R&B festival in decades. With the festival theme being “R&B Is Not Dead,” the powerhouse lineup included H.E.R., Jhené Aiko, Daniel Caesar, Summer Walker, Ari Lennox, Lucky Daye and more.
After captivating audiences with performances on the 2019 Grammy Awards, 2019 Video Music Awards, Austin City Limits, TODAY Show, Good Morning America, The Ellen Show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Late Show with James Corden, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, 2018 BET Awards and 2019 Global Citizen Festival, including her duet of Aerosmith’s “Dream On” with Alicia Keys — plus commanding the stage on her own sold out headlining domestic and international tours — the future is bright for this young star. In fact Elle magazine proclaims, “H.E.R. is more than a rising star – she’s a damn galaxy.”
