Robert Glasper Shares ‘Better Than I Imagined’ Single Featuring H.E.R. & Meshell Ndegeocello


Producer/musician Robert Glasper recruited H.E.R. to collaborate on the new single “Better Than I Imagined.” The song, which also features spoken word contributions from Meshell Ndegeocello, is the first taste of Glasper’s 2021 album, Black Radio 3.

“Black lives matter and so does black love; no one wants a life without love, but we have generations of people in our community who haven’t had the tools to actually be in healthy relationships,” said Glasper in a statement as per Rolling Stone. “It seems like people are finally ready to open their eyes to systemic racism in this country, and if we’re going to talk about it, we have to also talk about how it affects our relationships — how we communicate, how we see ourselves.”

Robert Glasper tapped Marvin Lau to direct the video for his ode to Black love, which was animated by Gianni Lee. Check out the “Better Than I Imagined” video below:
