Kane Brown and H.E.R. — Blessed & Free

Kane Brown and H.E.R. have unveiled their new collaboration, “Blessed & Free.” The three-minute track, which dropped on Thursday, features a soothing fusion of the singers’ smooth vocals and sound. Brown and H.E.R. sing a soft melody of gratitude, showing their appreciation of life and living at liberty. 

“I’ve been on the highway for two days / Tryna keep my head straight,” Brown croons in the opening verse. “Running from my old ways, the old days / It was dust and dreams.” 

Brown and H.E.R. then join forces in the chorus against an understated synth beat, piano, and guitar. “‘Cause as long as my eyes still see / As long as my heart still beats / As long as I’m alive, I’m free,” they sing. “So I don’t count on nothin’ / Don’t ever stop runnin’ / I ain’t hurt nobody, so just let me be / I got good intentions, I don’t need your blessings / Yeah, I’m already blessed, yeah, I’m already blessed and free.”

The two artists also dropped a music video to accompany their duet. The black and white visual, directed by Alex Alvga, stars Brown and H.E.R. singing soulfully amid an unostentatious backdrop setting, save for the addition of an ornate chandelier. While Brown sports a jacket over a button-up shirt with a pair of dark pants and sneakers, H.E.R. rocks an oversized shirt-dress with a pair of ankle boots and her signature sunglasses.

This isn’t the first time Brown and H.E.R have crossed into each other’s respective genres. In 2019, Brown hopped on R&B singer Khalid’s remix of “Saturday Night,” and the two worked together again on last year’s collaboration, “Be Like That” with Swae Lee. As for H.E.R., the California-born singer exquisitely performed a special rendition of her song “Hold On” alongside country star Chris Stapleton at the CMT Music Awards show back in June.
