'Songland' Season 2: HER tries acoustic version of Raquel's 'Wrong Places' after picking it as her next hit
Listening to HER's at-home version of 'Wrong Places', fans said she killed it
Grammy Award-winning singer HER appeared in 'Songland' Season 2 looking for her next big hit. She found it in Raquel Castro's 'Wrong Places' and fans who heard HER performing the song on social media say the singer killed it.
'Songland' Season 2 returned for Episode 3 on April 27 on NBC, and this week's guest artist was none other than singer-songwriter HER. We witnessed four budding songwriters battle it out against each other vying to be the songwriter who HER chooses. HER was joined by the judges/mentors, Ester Dean, Shane McAnally and Ryan Tedder.
The four contestants who appeared in 'Songland' on Monday were Axel Mansoor, Milly, Jocelyn Alice and Raquel Castro. After listening to all four songs, HER had to eliminate one artist and she chose to do away with Milly who performed her original song, 'Safe Place'.
The remaining three singers got to work with a judge to refurbish and improve their songs. Ryan-Raquel, Shane-Jocelyn and Easter-Axel teamed up to work on their respective songs. On hearing the improved versions, HER had to choose one song that would be her next hit.
Though she loved all three songs, ultimately she decided to go with Raquel's 'Wrong Places'. HER put out an at-home version of the song at the end of the episode accompanied by an acoustic guitar. Hearing HER's acoustic at-home version of 'Wrong Places' fans on Twitter affirm that she killed it.
Taking to Twitter, a fan wrote, "This song is amazing! Shout out to @NBCSongland for making this possible and to HER for killing anything she touches. We’re here for it!" Adding to that another fan shared, "We need that acoustic version on the album."
"This is a nice song has a really good vibe reminds me of Lauryn Hill I'll buy it," a fan said while another fan added, "You snapped once again! I’m in love."
"I am beyond excited that @HERMusicx picked Raquel’s song “Wrong Places” on #Songland. I am seriously adding this to my wedding playlist right now! AMAZING song. LOVE this! Thank you @NBCSongland for such amazing music every week," a fan shared. Another fan added, "Amazing song! Great choice! "
