While the world is at home in quarantine, Jhene Aiko and HER decided to team up for a good cause. Benefitting BET’s COVID-19 Relief Effort, Aiko and HER performed a special acoustic version of their collaborative song for the SOS: Saving Our Selves livestream series.
Armed only with HER’s skillful strumming and Aiko’s soaring vocals, the duo performed a rendition of their track “B.S.” Both singers sat in their respective homes and digitally collaborated on the stripped-down tune. Arriving fresh off Aiko’s recently-released record Chilombo, “B.S.” features fluttering harmonies from a combination of the singers’ airy vocals. Through the lyrics, the two try to distance themselves from an ex’s toxic behavior. “Seen you with your ex, I see you still about your old ways / Might just see him for the weekend, you say that’s a cold play,” HER sings.
This isn’t the first time HER has recently hopped on a livestream. Ahead of her virtual performance with Aiko, HER unveiled a series of livestreams titled Girls With Guitars. Each session features a different musical guest, performances, lively conversations, and Q&As with fans. The singer even partnered with Fender to give away five different guitars to viewers.
