H.E.R. has flawlessly shifted her recent influx of singles by demanding social justice as part of a vocal supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement sweeping not just the United State of America but the world over. Just last month she debuted her powerful new song “I Can’t Breathe” in a live performance followed by a music video. Now she returns with a new reggae-inspired track “Do To Me” featuring a sample of Sister Nancy’s iconic 1982 offering “Bam Bam”.

This isn’t the first time that H.E.R. has dabbled with reggae vibes. Earlier this year she wowed with her Skip Marley-featuring performance of “Slow Down” on The Tonight Show with some serious dancehall influences. She also premiered “Sometimes” at the GRAMMYs at the top of the year, and then followed up that surefire hit with the dialed back, acoustic track “Comfortable” at the top of the year. It’s that type of diversity in the singing and songwriting department that has made for such a welcomed return.

On “Do To Me”, H.E.R. she sings about the hypnotizing aspects of love. “Why, why you make me so blind?/ Just looking in your eyes, you/ Took my soul for a ride, ride/ How, how you make me fall down?/ Tripping over the sound of/ You loving me so loud, loud.” It’s simple and compact songwriting that’s sure to be stuck in your head for quite some time. Listen to H.E.R.’s new song below.

In more music updates, Roddy Ricch turned his appearance on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series into one of the most memorable visits of the year with backing from live band 1500 or Nothin’.
