The CMT appearance is another big moment for an incredibly big year for HER
In all honesty, it makes you feel a little dizzy when you sum up your year so far. Her first big spotlight moment in 2021 came in February when the artist – née Gabriella Wilson – delivered an amazing version of America the Beautiful before Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Super Bowl Sunday Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs defeated at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
From there, HER and the co-authors Dernst Emile II (“D’Mile”) and Tiara Thomas were able to meet with “Fight for You” (from the film “Judas and the Black Messiah”). But it was “Io Si (Seen)” – from the movie “The Life Ahead (La Vita Davanti a Se)” – that won in the end.
But “Fight for You” would win the even higher-profile rematch, beating “Io Si (Seen)” and other nominees who were named Best Original Song at the 93rd Annual Academy Awards in April.
Nestled between the Golden Globes and Oscars were the Grammy Awards, at which the Vallejo, California native, whose self-titled debut went platinum in 2017, featured industry heavyweights (and supposed favorites) like Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Billie. defeated Eilish and Post Malone win the song of the year with “I Can’t Breathe”.
The win surprised many, as “I Can’t Breathe” wasn’t a huge commercial hit like some of the nominees – especially the massive chart toppers from Swift and Malone – and only hit # 20 on the R&B charts.
