H.E.R. has been pretty good at keeping up the mystery surrounding her identity. The singer wowed many with her sensual EP, H.E. R. Vol. 1, and got us open with her unique take on modern R&B. Now she's readying to do it all over again with her next EP, H.E.R. Vol. 2. She's already offered up the EP's first release, "Say It Again," and now she's giving us more with her latest single, "Every Kind Of Way."
The simple ballad utilizes a sample guitar loop as its foundation. It reverberates throughout the entirety of the production, accompanied by booming bass and programmed drums, as H.E.R. delivers an audible love letter. "Baby, the sound of you," she sings. "Better than a harmony / I want you off my mind /And on me." After getting that frank thought off her chest, she keeps the pillow talk going strong throughout. "I wanna love you in every kind of way / I wanna please you, no matter how long it takes," she sings on the chorus. "If the world should end tomorrow, then we only have today / I'm gonna love you in every kind of way." With everything here being presented so simply, the song almost runs the risk of coming off too plain. Luckily, H.E.R. layers in vocal harmonies throughout to keep things texturally interesting as she makes her play for love.
Give "Every Kind of Way" a spin, and look for H.E.R. Vol. 2 to arrive in two weeks on June 2nd.
