H.E.R. drops long-awaited album, 'Back Of My Mind'

06/21/2021 10:47:44 PM

Award-winning Filipina-American R&B sensation H.E.R. has finally released her highly-anticipated full-length album Back of My Mind via MBK Entertainment/RCA Records and Sony Music

The 21-track of My Mind includes a star-studded lineup of guest features by Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign, Cordae, Lil Baby, Thundercat, Yung Bleu, DJ Khaled, Bryson Tiller, and YG. The album also featured producers Hit-Boy, Kaytranada, Cardiak, Rodney Jerkins, DJ Camper, and more. These provide lush and repeat-worthy productions, leaving adequate space for the four-time Grammy Award winner’s pristine vocals (and guitar shredding skills) to shine throughout. R&B at its core, this album showcases H.E.R.’s unique versatility as a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. 
“This collection of songs comes from feelings and thoughts that I’ve had in the back of mind,” said H.E.R. “That’s where I live sometimes. Some things I talk about in my music and other things I may have been afraid to say or admit. I’m finding freedom in being truthful with expression.” 
H.E.R. Is coming off a hot start for 2021, with two accolades from the Grammys (Song of the Year for “I Can’t Breathe” and Best R&B Song for her contribution to Robert Glasper’s “Better Than I Imagined”) and an Academy Award (off her powerful song “Fight For You” from the Warner Bros. Pictures’ film Judas and the Black Messiah) under her belt. Not only that, her recent show-stopping performance with Chris Stapleton on the CMT Music Awards was proceeded by equally impressive performances on the Billboard Music Awards with DJ Khaled and The Migos, iHeartRadio Music Awards’ Elton John Tribute, Oscars: Into The Spotlight special, Super Bowl LV, and more.

This June, H.E.R. Graced the cover of Variety magazine and starred in her own special episode of Amazon’s Prime Day Show, featuring music from the new album. On June 21, iHeartMedia will host the iHeartRadio Album Release Party with H.E.R. featuring an exclusive performance and an intimate conversation with Angie Martinez. The event will stream on the FOXSOUL YouTube channel and, and broadcast across iHeartMedia’s R&B, Rhythm, and select Hip Hop radio stations at 9pm ET/6pm PT.

The dynamic performer will return to NYC’s Rockefeller Center on June 25 for her second Today Show summer concert, followed by performances at the BET Awards on June 27, and her first-ever concert with the LA Philharmonic at The Hollywood Bowl on August 13 & 14.
