R&B’s presence at the 78th Golden Globe Awards will be felt this year with H.E.R., Andra Day and Raphael Saadiq scoring nominations.
Both singers are up for Best Original Song – Motion Picture. H.E.R. has secured a spot on the nominations list for the D’Mile-produced “Fight For You,” from the forthcoming film Judas and the Black Messiah. It is the 23-year-old’s first Golden Globe Award nomination. “Fight For You” is slated to drop this week, according to an Instagram post by the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter.
Meanwhile, Day’s song “Tigress & Tweed” from the upcoming Hulu Original movie The United States vs. Billie Holiday is up for a nod in the same category. The track was co-written by Day and Saadiq. Day, who stars as Holiday in the film, is also up for Best Actress – Motion Picture – Drama. It is also Day’s first set of Golden Globe nominations. The United States vs. Billie Holiday will premiere on February 26.
