Last month, H.E.R. contributed to the Black Lives Matter cause with her new single “I Can’t Breathe,” which speaks to the collective exhaustion over the senseless loss of life in our communities. Now, she returns with a more upbeat number titled “Do To Me,” a dancehall vibe that sees production from Swagg R’Celious and samples Sister Nancy’s classic cut “Bam Bam.” H.E.R. uses the track to sing about her love for a person that makes her feel a certain type of way:

“Wait, what did you do to me? Way past infatuation, this connection that we make, make/

And babe, keeping me up ‘til late, it’s only ‘cause I can’t wait ‘til, ’til you come to my place, place/

You say bye, baby, let me be wrong, on my mind like my favorite song, promise me you won’t leave me ‘lone, no, no, no, ‘cause/

All the things you do to me, do to me, do to me, do to me, yeah…/”

Previously, H.E.R. has peppered her fanbase with loose singles since last September, including the YG-assisted “Slide,” which spent time on several charts and spawned a remix featuring A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Chris Brown, and the late Pop Smoke. She also collaborated with Skip Marley on “Slow Down” and delivered the more recent solo cuts “Sometimes,” “Comfortable,” and “Wrong Places.”

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, H.E.R. spoke on what fans can expect from her forthcoming album:

“In general, I definitely want to hear more records with chord changes and more people taking pride in the quality of the sound rather than just taking a loop and putting a beat under it. People like Quincy Jones and even Rodney Jerkins perfected their mixes and made sure each instrument was doing the right thing. They were looking for that feeling, as opposed to looking for that hit.”
