Her music is pure, authentic R&B, and I feel like the direction of this "new R&B" in the way that artists like her and SZA are taking it, is really something that the genre (and urban music as a whole) needs right now.

Been obsessed with her since her first EP. She's so good.

Made a thread last year but it didn't get much traction.
Good to see more fans out there.

I listen to Still Down, Avenue, Losing, Wait For It and Jungle all the time.

She’s dope. Loved the second EP and the b-sides. Even Rih stanned for “Focus”.

The first EP is still the best one IMO

Music is nice but the whole about being anti-star and not revealing who she is seems really fake and off putting

It's just another marketing gimmick. Who cares when the music is good.

I actually think it exactly pretty brilliant to not reveal yourself, look at Sia, even though a quick google search reveals her face, radio still isn't hesitant to play her, even though most people of her age would not be played on radio because of the weird reasoning that younger people wouldn't like to listen to older artists or whatever. In H.E.R.'s case it is also a way to just completely build a sound and don't having to worry about being a celeb, and focus pure on the art

I want to be able to connect with the artist and I can’t with her (or Sia) because I can’t really see the emotion on their face.
Also, yes this does sound like a Marketing gimmick and nothing else (that’s why I say it comes across as fake). This will only make people get more curious to find out who she is than focus on the music - it doesn’t make sense at all

I get you, I wouldn't really like it if she would put this gimmick up the rest of her career, but as starting artist (or in Sia's case to get a 2nd round) it is a great way to release without having to fit a certain image or worry about your status as celeb, I assume, so in this phase of her career it works for her

"Best Part" is randomly taking off on Indonesian Spotify so I decided to check it out and it's actually good! :o Remind me of the good ol music from 00's.

Let me check out the album.

Best Part just clicked with me today, it's such a feel-good song.

I think it's such a beautifully done song. Reminds me of Babyface stuff.
