The news follows the release of her third hit single “Love In The Dark” and the announcement of her debut studio album Before Love Came To Kill Us due March 27 via FMLY/Island Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company. “Love in The Dark” is an immensely poignant and vulnerable song about lost love. The single has garnered over 7 M views shortly after release and has amassed well over 3M streams to date. Resulting in great acclaim from both fans and press, including Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, The Fader, Billboard, Hypebeast, Complex, and more, including The New York Times, which said “Jessie Reyez has a special voice that’s capable of serrated soul belting and several more nuanced modes. It can sizzle, it can hiss, it can quiver with nerve. On this arresting song about loss, it’s pulsing with perseverance and strength in the face of trauma.”
Jessie leverages her personal experiences to write through emotional pain and deliver a meaningful sound her fans can connect to and appreciate. Known for her outspoken storytelling and raw vocals, emulating the likes of Amy Winehouse, Jessie uses her talents to expose the darkest corners of the music industry. She maintains this breed of storytelling in her forthcoming and heavily anticipated debut album Before Love Came to Kill Us while exploring themes surrounding immigration, feminism, and love in songs such as “Love in the Dark”, “Crazy”, and “Far Away.”
In the past year alone, Jessie has released a string of critically-praised songs, performed both “Far Away” and “Crazy" on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, as well as a duet performance of the GOLD-CERTIFIED reimagined hit single "Imported" with 6LACK on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, a headlining tour, performances at a plethora of music festivals, and collaborations with many notable artists including Eminem, Kehlani, Daniel Caesar, Romeo Santos, Lewis Capaldi, Karol G, Bea Miller and has co-writing credits on Dua Lipa's hit song "One Kiss" with Calvin Harris and "Promises" with Calvin Harris and Sam Smith.
As she continues to accumulate accolades, praise, and success, Jessie maintains the strong work ethic instilled in her by her parents and is conscious of her Latin roots by collaborating with and providing guidance to both rising and established acts as she climbs the charts. It is through her hard work, grit, and collaborative efforts that her solo catalog has obtained nearly one billion streams worldwide while her videos have resulted in over 230M views. Her raw vocals paired with her unique point of view and soulful expression make her an exciting rising star among critics and fans, putting her on the path to becoming a cherished household name in 2020.
