H.E.R. drops new single “The Journey” inspired by NBA playoffs

RCA Records

In an exciting collaboration with ESPN, H.E.R. released her latest single, “The Journey,” Thursday morning.

The track captures the essence of the NBA Playoffs presented by Google Pixel and the unique paths taken by the 16 teams competing for victory.

“The Journey” has been prominently featured in ESPN’s in-game production elements, including vignettes narrated by H.E.R. These vignettes, along with other production elements, depict the exhilarating journey of each team through the playoffs.

The new track not only resonates with the NBA Playoffs narrative, it also mirrors the singer’s personal journey as she embarks on the next chapter of her career, spanning music, film and TV.

Written by acclaimed songwriter Diane Warren, the heartfelt ballad marks H.E.R.’s first solo release since her Grammy-winning album, Back Of My Mind, in 2021.
