H.E.R. Changes it up with Summertime Reggae & Blues Track, 'Do To Me'
Evan Dale // July 13, 2020
We love hearing an established artist experiment with new sounds. And from the prolific and prolifically acclaimed H.E.R., Do To Me is a risk well taken. Channeling Sister Nancy, the R&B super soulstress brings into play a reggae-driven Summer love anthem that shines a new light on her range without losing sight of the unparalleled skills – her vocal register & poetic songwriting – that have made her one of modern R&B’s most irreplaceable keystones.
Truthfully, the merged lane between reggae and R&B has long been fertile ground for defying the boundaries of genre, and in a time when the introduction of West African and Caribbean musical traditions into the mainstream is pushing forward the grandiose direction of culture, H.E.R.’s take on Reggae & Blues is a vibrant addition to her own canon, to Summertime playlists, and to music at large.
