H.E.R. is on the verge of dropping off her expansive new album Back Of My Mind at midnight, featuring guest appearances from Ty Dolla $ign, Cordae, Lil Baby, KAYTRANADA, Thundercat, Chris Brown, Yung Bleu, DJ Khaled, Bryson Tiller, and YG. Ahead of the big release, the melodist has delivered a new single “My Own,” a laid-back and vibey track from the Grammy-winning talent.

“I don’t wanna work for somethin’ knowin’ it ain’t worth it,” she sings, her vocals floating over the understated production. “Oh, comin’, you know it was comin’ / You should know that I don’t act like that without a purpose.” What’s most impressive throughout is the restraint, as both H.E.R and beatmakers Scribz Riley & GRADES never succumb to the temptation of going big. As such, “My Own” remains an introspective slow-burner throughout, allowing H.E.R’s vocal performance and lyrics to be the song’s driving force.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Said I been away too long
Every time I hear that song
I don’t wanna hear it no more
Baby, I can’t take no more from you
I don’t wanna play no more
Don’t be goin’ back and forth on me
I be already on call
Even when I know it’s wrong for me
Somethin’, don’t know, but it’s somethin’
I don’t wanna work for somethin’ knowin’ it ain’t worth it
Oh, comin’, you knew it was comin’
You should know that I don’t act like that without a purpose, oh, no
Call me crazy, baby, you just bring it out of me (Uh)
I’m tryna do better, but you ain’t been helpin’ me
Baby, I can’t help it, you know how to get to me

[Chorus]
I, I
I been tryna hold my own
My own, my own
Ooh, baby, on my own
My own, my own, ooh

[Verse 2]
Don’t mind me, ’cause it ain’t about you (Oh)
We both need space and that’s all so true (Ooh)
Know it’s okay if you can’t come through
I’m savin’ your place and it’s all for you, oh
Oh, we been waitin’ too long (Yeah)
I was tryna keep calm, either way, we both wrong
I been waitin’ on a call, ooh, I really wanna call you
I been tryna be strong, you’re the only one I wanna talk to
Oh, yeah, you just know me better
And it just gets better, just let me undress ya
On you, on you, ’cause I just love the feeling
When you go inside it and I get excited
Oh, oh
Baby, you keep showin’ out, but I just can’t slow it down
‘Cause I just want you right now, with me now
Don’t you keep on holdin’ out, givin’ me the run-around
Are you just noticing now?

[Chorus]
I’m on my own
My own, my own
Ooh, baby, on my own
My own, my own
I been tryna hold my own
My own, my own
I’m just tryna hold my own
My own, my own, yeah
