H.E.R. returns with her vulnerable new single, “Damage”

H.E.R. is back with a new single, “Damage,” and a video to go with it.

With her alluring voice and lyrics, the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter warns us about the damage that can happen when your significant other takes you for granted. 

“All night you could be / Tellin’ me lies, makin’ me cry, wastin’ my time / The whole time, so just be / careful what you take for granted / yeah, ’cause with me know you could do damage,” she sings on the track. 

“Damage” samples the classic 1980s record “Making Love in the Rain” by Herb Alpert, Lisa Keith and Janet Jackson

H.E.R. is supported by her live band on a beautifully adorned stage in the song’s music video, which was shot at the Roxie Theatre in Los Angeles. 

“Damage” follows H.E.R.’s riveting protest anthem “I Can’t Breathe” and her reggae-inspired track, “Do To Me,” and could very likely be the lead single from her highly-anticipated, forthcoming album. Most recently, H.E.R. was seen in the studio with the legendary Brandy and platinum songwriter and producer Tone Stith. 

Stay tuned for H.E.R.’s debut performance on Saturday Night Live Saturday, October 24, hosted by another Grammy-winning singer, Adele.
