H.E.R. is no doubt still riding the high from her first-time Grammy wins, but the vocalist doesn’t plan on slowing down any time soon. 

Speaking with reporters following the February 10 awards ceremony, the 21-year-old “We Could’ve Been” singer shared her big goals for 2019, which include finally gifting fans with her debut album later this year. 

H.E.R. also spoke candidly about the music industry’s positive shift in highlighting more women entertainers.

“So many women were nominated alongside each other, and I love that camaraderie, that’s what we need,” H.E.R. said. “We need more women to support other women.”

She continued, “At the end of the day, it’s not a competition — there’s a place for everybody’s voice to be heard. And we all represent different types of women, all shapes and sizes, all different voices and different messages to spread.”

H.E.R. snagged two Grammys this year: Best R&B Album for her self-titled compilation EP, as well as Best R&B performance for Daniel Caesar-assisted record, “Best Part.”
