Today, the new single is available on all streaming platforms.
“Letter To H.E.R” is a short song I made in admiration of soul music and one of my favorite R&B artist doing it right now. It’s also a letter to the type of women I admire.” – J French
“Letter To H.E.R” is from J French’s forthcoming OGB 1.5 album. Due out November 9, OGB 1.5 is a complete overhaul of the original OGB album (released via EMPIRE at the beginning of this year), with new original songs and remixes.
