Watch HER team up with Lenny Kravitz, Travis Barker and more for a star-studded medley
Earlier this month, HER set the Grammys stage on fire with an electrifying medley of tracks from her debut album, for which she recruited a slew of music stars. Now, after weeks of waiting, footage of the jaw-dropping performance has finally appeared online.
For the occasion, Fender’s signature artist was joined by Blink-182 drummer and in-demand session man Travis Barker, as well as legendary multi-instrumentalist Lenny Kravitz.
The lineup was rounded out by R&B songwriter and producer Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis – wielding a keytar and bass guitar, respectively – who first flanked a guitarless HER as she kicked off the extended medley with a snippet. fast of his piece, damage.

You can see footage of the performance in the video above.
Aside from Kravtiz’s cover, every song in the medley was taken from HER’s debut studio album, In the back of my mindwhich happened last year.
