The Obamas announced Wednesday they have produced We the People, a 10-episode Netflix series aimed at educating children on United States civics lessons. They have enlisted artists like H.E.R., Cordae, Andra Day, Janelle Monáe, and more to take part. H.E.R. shared her contribution, the freshly released “Change” single. On the song, H.E.R. sings over a groovy beat about the importance of wanting to make a difference:

Wrote a letter to the mayor, can you hear me out? (Hear me out)/ Wanna talk on all the issues that I care about/ Speak free, keep the peace, when we say it loud (Say it loud)/ Meetin’ all my people at the city council

Pay attention so I know my rights (Know my rights), education’s gonna change the cycle/ Volunteer, I could help a life (Help a life), communities, plantin’ trees, recycle/ If I’m just one person will my voice even stand out?

Most recently, the songstress tapped in with Chris Brown to deliver their “Come Through” collab track. A few months ago, H.E.R. also shared her singles “Hold On” and “Damage,” the latter track which she also performed on SNL the same night. Back in February, the official soundtrack for Judas and the Black Messiah surfaced, revealing contributions from names like Nas, Lil Durk, G Herbo, Rakim, H.E.R., and many more. H.E.R. contributed a powerful single and visual “Fight For You,” which served to empower her people.

H.E.R.’s last full-length project was 2019’s I Used To Know Her. The 19-track compilation included features from DJ Scratch, YBN Cordae, and Bryson Tiller. In 2020, she shared a handful of singles including “Do To Me,” “Wrong Places” from Songland,“Slide” and its remix featuring A Boogie, Chris Brown, and the late Pop Smoke, and “Comfortable.” She also provided assists on Skip Marley’s “Slow Down” and Lonr.’s “Make The Most.”
