H.E.R – Can’t Help Me :H.E.R. is back at it again with her 2nd release of 2018, the newly-minted I Used to Know Her: Part 2. The EP sees her move away from the normal parameters of her music, in favour of a more discretionary sound.
The result gives her body of work a wider field of complexity. If anything, songs like “Can’t Help Me” communicate a desire to go a simpler route. “Can’t Help Me” is produced by the team of Flippa and Jeff Gitelman, the former renown for his contribution to Kendrick Lamar’s modern classic To Pimp A Butterfly.
The record is noted for a harmony that mimics her voice, caught between a “guitar being strummed,” and simple piano chords.
