Normally discovering you've been nominated in a whopping five Grammy categories is cause for celebration, but when H.E.R.'s management came to her Wednesday (Nov. 20) morning, she thought something was wrong.
"I forgot about the announcements today," the R&B singer-songwriter tells Billboard. "I'm in the middle of doing this shoot, and Jeanine [McLean], part of my management team [at MBK Entertainment], came up to me like, 'Oh, there's an emergency.' She got me thinking it was something wrong -- and then she told me I had five nominations. And I was like, 'What? Again?!'"
It's a fair reaction. She was up for five nominations at the 2019 Grammys and walked away with two trophies. In 2020, not only is she up for five additional awards, but she's nominated in the album of the year category for the second consecutive year.
