H.E.R.’s fans are anxiously awaiting the release of her debut studio album, Back of My Mind. The highly anticipated record drops this Friday (June 18), but on Wednesday (June 16), Apple Music revealed the album’s tracklist.

According to the pre-save listing, Back of My Mind will feature the likes of Chris Brown, YG, Ty Dolla $ign, Hit-Boy, Cordae, Lil Baby, Kaytranada, Yung Bleu, DJ Khaled, Bryson Tiller and Thundercat. The album is 21-songs-long, including H.E.R.’s previously released hits, “Come Through,” “Hold On,” “Slide,” “We Made It” and “Damage.”

Although Back of My Mind will mark H.E.R.’s official debut album, the 23-year-old has already accomplished a lot since breaking onto the scene in 2016.

In 2017, her first compilation album, H.E.R., was nominated for five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, and ultimately won Best R&B Album and Best R&B Performance. This year, she won another Grammy Award for her protest anthem “I Can’t Breathe” and earned an Oscar for the song “Fight For You,” which she co-wrote with Tiara Thomas and D’Mile for the film Judas and the Black Messiah.

H.E.R. told Variety this week, “My first few [releases] were just a small piece of who I am musically and it was a matter of time before I could reveal others. I’ve always been a huge fan of Coldplay and Led Zeppelin and Radiohead and alternative and rock and blues, but it wasn’t until this album that I started digging into those other elements and bringing them to R&B.”

“Lyrically, [the new album] is not just one thing either,” she added. “It’s a lot of different emotions and perspectives and things I’ve felt in the past few years. Now that people have entered into my world and have a better understanding, I can give more.”
