Gabriella Wilson is an American singer and songwriter, with the stage name H.E.R which is a backronym for ‘Having Everything Revealed’. She rose to fame by participating in Radio Disney’s Next Big Thing in 2009. She then signed to RCA Records at the age of 14 and released the single “Something to Prove” under her real name in 2014.
Wilson released her first E.P titled ‘H.E.R Volume 1’ in the year 2016 and thereafter released subsequent EPs like ‘H.E.R volume 2’, ‘I used to know her: the prelude’ among others. H.E.R. was nominated for five Grammy Awards at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards in 2019, winning Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Album. In 2020, she was nominated for five awards at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year for I Used to Know Her and Song of the Year for “Hard Place”. H.E.R made it to Forbes’ “5 Alternative R&B Artists to Look Out for in 2017”, with a quote from the article: “In the same vein as The Weeknd’s enigmatic introduction to the world, H.E.R.’s image remains a mystery. The irony, though, is that her moniker is an acronym for Having Everything Revealed.”
Grammy award winner, H.E.R has just returned with a reggae influenced gift titled “Do To Me” which featured a sample of Sister Nancy’s iconic 1982 tune “Bam Bam”. H.E.R isn’t a newbie to the reggae business as earlier this year she dabbled into reggae once again in the Skip Marley featured track titled “Slow Down” on The Tonight Show. It is her singing and songwriting prowess that has distinguished her over the years even at a very young age. “Do To Me” is a track that discusses the effects of an intoxicating love. It highlights simple and compact songwriting that’s sure to be stuck in your head for quite some time. H.E.R’s songs have been described as “downcast post-breakup material that sounds vulnerable and assured at once”.
