Listen to H.E.R. Vol 2 from soulful singer H.E.R.

H.E.R., Vol. 2

There’s something ironic about the fact that the anonymous singer named H.E.R. makes music so intimate and revealing that it feels like reading someone’s diary. On this confessional follow-up, she throws listeners into the thick of a messy breakup and all its tension, temptation, and second-guessing. “Wait, maybe it’s just a phase/Took a minute for you to say I’m sorry,” she sings on “Gone Away,” letting her voice tremble with torment. “Don’t ask if you really don’t want to hear it when I’m telling you how I feel.” She’s so good at wearing her heart on her sleeve that, at least for a moment, it’s easy to forget she’s still a mystery.
