H.E.R. finally releases “Fight For You” after previewing it on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. D’Mile produced the ’60s-inspired album for the Judas and The Black Messiah motion film soundtrack. It’s official. H.E.R. uses every means required to advocate for black people’s freedom and justice. It’s powerful, uplifting, and soulful all at the same time.
On February 12, both Judas and The Black Messiah, as well as the music of the next film, will be released.
In an interview with Zane Lowe, she said the following about the song:
“It was pretty fast. After we watched the movie in the studio together, then we just started to talk. And that’s honestly why I love working with D’Mile and Tiara [Thomas] because I can talk to them.
We have these conversations and there’s a comfortability. And I think the biggest thing was listening to some of our favorite, some of my favorites; Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, and people like that, Sly and the Family Stone. I was like, ‘I really want to capture the right percussion sounds and get the bass line.’ We started with the bass line. I picked up the bass and I was fiddling a little bit. And then I had walked away. D’Mile came, picked up the bass, and then we landed on something. And it was really about the message, you know.”
