Jessie Reyez Releases New Album “YESSIE”: Streaming
- Canadian singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez released her sophomore album “YESSIE” on September 16, 2022.
It is her first album in two years since the 2020 debut album “Before Love Came to Kill Us”
The album comprises 11-track, featuring guest appearance from 6LACK.
This time, she worked with Andrew “Pop” Wansel, Anthony Daniel Szczachor, Calvin Harris, Tim Suby, Rykeyz and Sam Homaee, among others on the album.
The album starts “MOOD” where she declares as “I get along with most men more than I do with some women”, and ends with a bilingual, English-Spanish track “Adiós Amor”.
Jessie Reyez said of the album, “I'm in a different space. I've been growing. I've been taking inventory of my mental state. Watching my thoughts. Making sure the little voice in my head is actually on my side. Showing myself the grace that I so often show others. Be more present and being open. That's what the album is about 'Yessie'.”
- Originally, she named the new album “self”. She told Billboard about the album, “I was originally thinking I was going to name the project Self, because I feel like I've made such an emphasis on self-discovering, self-healing. I've been way more selfish than I've ever been in my life. You need balance, but I needed that extra push to get close to myself again and treat myself with kindness. I'm so nice to everybody else, but when I'm alone I'm criticizing myself or being too hard on myself and not being kind, not showing myself grace. I finally realized, 'How you going to be cool to everybody but not cool to you?'”
Jessie Reyez embarks on Yessie Tour in support of the new album. The tour kicks off at The Oasis in Miami, Florida on October 13, 2022 and will conclude at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire in London, England on January 31, 2023.
