Vevo announces the release of H.E.R.’s live performance for the hit “Slide.” Presented anonymously, contemporary R&B artist H.E.R. (Having Everything Revealed) surfaced in 2016 with H.E.R., Vol. 1, an EP of downcast post-breakup material that sounded both vulnerable and assured, much like what followed from the singer and songwriter. The seven-track EP appeared on major-label RCA in September 2016 with limited promotion, but labelmates Alicia Keys and Bryson Tiller spread the word through social media, and a cover of Drake’s “Jungle” helped send the set to number 28 on Billboard’s R&B/hip-hop chart. A similarly styled follow-up, H.E.R., Vol. 2, arrived in June 2017 and debuted at number 22. The EPs were soon combined and expanded, released as H.E.R., with six additional cuts — including “Best Part,” a number 32 R&B/hip-hop hit previously heard on Daniel Caesar’s Freudian — referred to as B-sides.
“Slide” is now streaming on all platforms. Keep up with exclusive content from artists all over the world on YouTube.com/Vevo.
