With her first album released mid-September, H.E.R. is an upcoming R&B artist with talent to show. H.E.R. Vol. 1 is so soothing and relaxing.

The first song, “Losing,” is a soft ballad that entices her audience and makes the listener want to continue listening. She even covers “Jungle” by Drake later in the EP. “Focus” is another noteworthy song on the self-titled album because it is a little more upbeat than the majority of her songs, and that gives the entire project a wholesome and complete feeling.

It’s hard to listen to the album in its entirety and think, “there’s something off with this album. I just can’t put my finger on it.” I think adding a couple fast beats here and there gives the illusion that she covers almost everything in the book. Even though there’s only seven songs on this album, that’s all she needs to make an impression. Go give “H.E.R., Vol. 1” a listen!
