One of the most exciting new talents to emerge in the past year has been H.E.R. The excitement has been fueled the R&B bangers she's released and the mystery surrounding her identity. For the majority of her time on the scene, the singer was only seen in silhouette on her EP covers, and she's yet to release any music videos. It wasn't until this summer that she emerged from the shadows as an opening act on Bryson Tiller's Set It Off Tour. Even then, her face was hidden by big sunglasses and bigger hair. Despite all that, after much speculation, H.E.R. has pretty much been confirmed to be singer/songwriter Gabi Wilson, and she's continuing to make money moves.
H.E.R. has some big things popping this month and next. She'll be releasing the digital deluxe edition of H.E.R. on October 20th, which will include songs from H.E.R. Vol. 1 and H.E.R. Vol. 2. In addition, the project will include five new songs and the track "Best Part," her smoking duet with Daniel Caesar, which we already fell in love with on his recently released album Freudian. On the heels on H.E.R. dropping, she will embark on her first headlining tour at the top of November.
Named The Lights On Tour after H.E.R. Vol. 2 single "Lights On," the songstress will take center stage all over North America. The 17-date tour will kick off in Washington, D.C. on November 5th and then travel coast-to-coast taking her to Boston, Atlanta, Chicago, Toronto, Houston, Los Angeles, Seattle and more locations. The tour will end in Canada with a show in Vancouver on November 30th. Tickets to see H.E.R. live on The Lights On Tour will go on sale on Friday, October 6th via her official website.
