This performance marks the singer’s follow-up to her appearance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend, where she performed alongside Adele, who took over hosting duties for the night. During her Saturday Night Live debut, the singer gave viewers a rendition of her track, “Hold On” along with another performance of “Damage,” clearly a favorite of the star.
Throughout the lyrics of the song, H.E.R. is singing about how she’s allowing herself to be vulnerable in a relationship, but if she isn’t too careful, that person could easily take advantage of her emotions and flip the switch on her.
“If you got it, it ain’t no question
No, it ain’t no room for guessin’
No more than emotionally invested (No, no)
Showin’ you all my imperfections, oh”
“If I let you, you’ll take me for granted, yeah (You, you, you, you)
If I’m worth more than you could manage, manage, yeah
Open with me, oh, we could be honest
Closer to me, oh, givin’ me silence
Promise that you won’t let me fall, oh, oh”

H.E.R’s brilliant performance comes just a few days after her epic BET Awards cypher alongside Erykah Badu, Teyana Taylor, and Brandy. The singer flexed some powerful bars about her Filipino heritage and addressed the growing problem of police brutality that continues to escalate throughout the U.S.
Back in June, the multi-talented artist released a song titled “I Can’t Breathe,” following the protests that ignited after the death of George Floyd.
