FORBES: 5 Alternative R&B Artists


In the same vein as The Weeknd’s enigmatic introduction to the world, H.E.R.’s image remains a mystery. The irony, though, is that her moniker is an acronym for Having Everything Revealed. With no bio available, the only glimpse listeners have into the cloaked songstress’ life is her music, and according to an interview with the LA Times, that’s how she likes it. H.E.R.’s debut project, H.E.R. Vol. 1, has received nearly 30 million streams since its release in September of 2016. With co-signs from artists such as Bryson Tiller, Usher and Alicia Keys, the songwriter’s second volume will be a highly anticipated follow-up in 2017.
