HER has shared her new single, “Fight For You.”
The track is featured in Shaka King’s new film, Judas and the Black Messiah, which focuses on the life of late Black Panther Party member Fred Hampton and his fight for social and racial justice in the ’60s.
HER draws inspiration from Hampton’s message, as well as the funk and soul music of the era, creating a powerful, anthemic tune. “All the smoke in the air / Feel the hate when they stare / All the pain that we bear / Oh, you better beware,” she croons.
“Fight For You” has already been nominated for Best Original Song – Motion Picture at the 2021 Golden Globes. Earlier this year, HER teamed up with Jazmine Sullivan on Heaux Tales cut “Girl Like Me.” Last weekend, she also performed “America the Beautiful” at the Super Bowl.
