One of the most topical songs to come out of the quarantine era has been H.E.R.’s “I Can’t Breathe,” written in the wake of the death of George Floyd. 

Like some of H.E.R.’s biggest songs — including “Slide” — it was co-written with another singer/guitarist, Tiara Thomas. 

We spoke to Thomas about that song, as well as her other collaborations with H.E.R. and the Wale song that kick-started her career. 

In this episode of 100 Years of Radio -100 Years of Hit Makers, we sit down with Tiara Thomas to hear stories behind the lyrics and songs she’s helped create. 

100 Years of Radio – 100 Years of Hit Makers special podcast series is produced in partnership with Beasley Media Group, XPERI (HD Radio), and BMI in celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the first commercial radio broadcast.
