H.E.R. taps Lil Durk and Lil Baby for 'Find a Way' remix, fans say 'can't go wrong’
H.E.R. is a Grammy and Academy Award winner but despite that her debut album ‘Back of My Mind’ was not well-received by critics, and music lovers dubbed it as “boring” when it dropped in June 2021. Now, the singer is back again with a remix of the song ‘Find a Way’ that was listed in the original tracklist of the album. The original version had Atlanta’s Lil Baby on the guest verse.
The singer’s debut project featured artistes like Ty Dolla Sign, Chris Brown, Yung Bleu, and others. In order to take the remix a notch higher, the 24-year-old songstress tapped Lil Durk - one of the hottest rappers in the game right now. And, interestingly, Lil Baby and Lil Durk share a close bond with each other. The duo dropped their first collaborative album called ‘The Voice of the Heroes’ on June 4, 2021.

H.E.R. taps Lil Durk for ‘Find a Way (Remix)’
Chicago icon Lil Durk and Atlanta’s hip-hop heavyweight Lil Baby are currently a dream team if any artiste is looking for hot collaborations. H.E.R. opens the song with a chorus where she croons, “Got this s**t up out the mud, still grindin' like I'm tryna get my weight up (Weight up)/ Went and gave too many chances to you ni**as, I can't let nobody play us (Play us).” Lil Baby takes over the song with his first verse, as he raps, “I done ran it up out the mud, I get paid to pop out at clubs/ Put my partner 'nem in my budget/ I watch people change, I can't trust 'em/ I got rich but I'm still hustlin'/ I run full speed to that cash, I can feel this s**t in my calf muscles.”
Showing his skills on the guest verse, Durk spits, “Bi**h, this is straight out the mud/ Back in 2010 I was sellin' them dubs/ Back in granny crib when the lights were off/ We would blame it on the bugs/ Same ni**as claim who I love, Identify who I was.” The remix comes days after H.E.R. responded to being called an “industry plant” by critics. Speaking in an interview with Vulture in the first week of September, she said, “With social media, people think they know everything about success” adding, “People see my success now, and they don’t understand the sacrifices, the 15-hour days in the studio, the pressure from my parents to go to college.”
The singer-songwriter added, “Most of the time, people think success is followers and crazy BTS popularity like if you’re not Beyonce, you’re not famous. ‘Oh, you’ll get there one day.’ Like, everybody doesn’t want to be Beyonce!” She concluded, “For me, I grinded it out kinda like a rapper: I dropped a mixtape, nobody knew who I was, it was a very slow build, and here we are now.”
‘Can’t go wrong with Durk and Baby’
Social media thronged to Instagram as soon as H.E.R. dropped the remix. One user said, “I was hoping you put Dej Loaf on the remix.” Whereas, another posted, “This is one of the hardest records on the album” followed by two fire emojis. One fan shared, “Damn superstar you take no breaks” as another wrote, “Cant go wrong w durk and baby.” The next one added, “Tuffff! Baby & Durk really putting in overtime in the stu.” One person asserted, “U officially is my bi**h bi**h sorry but that’s the only way i can describe my love for u and your music and style.” One claimed, “That’s an interesting collab” as another concluded, “I been banging this s**t since it dropped.”
