The time has finally come. After years of (im)patiently waiting on the edge of our seats, H.E.R. has announced the release date for the debut album, Back of My Mind.

The future EGOT winner (yes, we're manifesting this) has two dynamic EPs under her belt and her debut eponymous project snagged a GRAMMY for Best R&B Album. The woman of mystery revealed the date, which is next Friday June 18th on social media.

In the post, she states, "you know, people always ask me 'what's the message? where does it come from? is it personal experience?'" She responds, "and it's always the thoughts that sit in the back of my mind. It's always things that I've been through, things that I go through or things that I feel and all those thoughts that I think I'm afraid to say sometimes or that we're afraid to say."

The Oscar winner continued, " [it's] things that feel to honest or too vulnerable or too emotional or too aggressive or too— I don't know. It's all of those things that have been in the back of my mind for the past few years since my first project. It's like a peek into my soul." The announcement appropriately ends with a musical teaser of H.E.R. singing "we made it." The single, "We Made It" will reportedly be released tomorrow, according to Genius.
