Last year H.E.R. – real name Gabriella Wilson – was be featured as part of an all-female hip hop album, curated by Cardi B and Halle Berry. The collection served as the soundtrack to Netflix‘s film Bruised, which saw Berry make her directorial debut. She also stared in the movie as Jackie Justice, a disgraced MMA fighter. The singer contributed the cut ‘Automatic Woman’.
“I can’t wait to show it. I have to tell you, one of the things I’m most excited about is the title song that H.E.R. sang… and she killed it,” Berry told Variety at the time. “I can’t wait to share with everyone and am super excited.”
