Author, composer, performer … If one thing is certain, it’s that Jessie Reyez knows how to multi-task! Some have known her through the texts she wrote for Dua Lipa or Sam Smith, but the young Colombo-Canadian artist has especially been known on the international music scene thanks to the way she mixes genres: soul, pop, Latin rhythms, rap or even gospel, Jessie Reyez (Island Records) tries them all brilliantly. From her universe influenced by Amy Winehouse and Bob Marley was born the album Before Love came to Kill Us. Released at the end of March, the album bears the same name as the music video released this week. Directed by Claire Edmondson, this stroll which alternates between RnB, pop, soul, and rock sounds speaks of themes that are recurrent for the artist: love, desire, and even second chances.
Jessie’s memories, doubts, and emotions are unleashed against the backdrop of the city of Toronto where the singer is from. After opening for PARTYNEXTDOOR‘s tour as well as Billie Eilish‘s (cut short because of the current health crisis), Jessie Reyez recently appeared on our screens via Beyoncé’s visual album Black is King following her collaboration with 070 Shake on the title SCAR, and continues to create her place in the current pop musical landscape by making us constantly travel.
