Kane Brown and H.E.R. cross genre boundaries with collaboration on, “Blessed & Free”
One of the results of Covid-19 within the music industry was the diversity in collaborations among genres. Country singer Kane Brown, and R&B legend H.E.R., have paired up to release “Blessed & Free.” Both artists, however, are not unfamiliar with unusual collaborations.
Kane Brown has released music with pop and hiphop icons like Marshmello, Swae Lee, and blackbear. Gabriella Wilson (with stage name H.E.R.) has also blurred genre lines by collaborating with Chris Stapleton and performing their song “Hold On” at the 2021 CMT awards back in June.
With this release, they hope to encourage people to find hope in difficult times. "When I think of this song and the meaning of it, you know, talking about some of those lows -- it's kind of just being grateful for the process, for the journey that is life," H.E.R. says. "We're always trying to get somewhere, but I think what makes it more special is the journey, and being grateful for strength, being grateful for still moving forward even in times where you're in doubt... knowing no matter what happens, I'm still blessed and free.”
Chris Brown expressed what the song mean’t to him by mentioning the extra time he got to spend with his daughter Kingsley during the pandemic. "I got to hang out with her all year," he says. "I got to really know her and see her grow and start walking, and I didn't have to miss any of those moments... I'm so thankful now that she's old enough that I can bring her on the bus. I still get to be with her all throughout my tour.”
