This just in: Daniel Caesar and H.E.R, the Best Part duo have bagged two BET awards nominations each.
The R&B crooners have had a strong year post the release of their individual projects: Daniel Caesar’s ‘Freudian’ & H.E.R’s ‘H.E.R, Vol. 2’ and it’s only natural that BET is giving them the recognition that they have so rightfully earned!
Their musical genius was noticed by BET and they were both nominated for the Best New Artist award for this year’s edition.
As for their second nominations, Caesar scored a Best Male R&B/Pop Award nomination, while H.E.R’s second one came in the Best Female R&B/Pop Artist Award category.
The duo has also performed their hit single, Best Part Together, at both ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Coachella.
Speaking of Caesar however, his track Get You, featuring Kali Uchis, and his debut album Freudian have managed to bag Grammy nominations this year too, for Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Album.
The 22-year-old Toronto native, born Ashton Simmonds, has been dropping hit after hit for quite a while now.
The album Freudian was extremely well received by critics all over and audience reactions roared over the tops. Caesar’s genre particularly swings between soulful to bangers and his audience’s dedication is clearly evident from the 7 million hits that Get You has on Spotify.
It is closely followed by Best Part, which has managed to bag over 66 million Spotify streams and counting.
But of course, credit must go to H.E.R aka Gabriella Wilson, whose stage name is actually an acronym for “Having Everything Revealed”. The singer-songwriter from Vallejo, California is all of 20 and already has a BET and also a Grammy nomination to her name.
It’s clear – the time for young R&B singers to rise is finally here!
