H.E.R. reeled in a nice set of Grammy nominations this year.
H.E.R. also known as Gabi Wilson got the best surprise of the year when her tour manager called her in for an early morning meeting only to reveal that she's been nominated for five Grammy awards. "It took me a second to register. And I started crying and everybody was going crazy. We were all screaming and crying. It was a moment to be surrounded by my band and the people I love. To get that news, it was so much at one time," Gabi told Billboard.
The "Focus" singer is up for album of the year, best new artist, best R&B performance, best R&B song and best R&B album, telling the publication how the biggest surprise was for album of the year since her last tapes were just EPs.
"[...] I didn't even drop an album," she added. "It's my project, it's my two EPs together and it's not even an album. It was literally a "It's time for me to drop music. I finally realized who I was. Let me just see what happens" [kind of thing]. Then, two years later, a sold-out tour and five Grammy nominations."
The 2018 Grammys will take place on February 10th in Los Angeles at the Staples Center.
