Jessie Reyez Releases New Album “BEFORE LOVE CAME TO KILL US”: Streaming
- Canadian singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez released her long-awaited debut album “BEFORE LOVE CAME TO KILL US” on March 27th.
The album features guest appearances from Eminem and 6LACK. “She sings from her heart,” Eminem said. “She’s writing about [expletive] that she’s been through and stuff like that. But it’s not easy to do what she does, and she makes it look so easy. She doesn’t sound like anybody. Her style of singing, the way she enunciates her words and everything, she’s just naturally dope. It seems like she’s not even trying, and she’s that good. Her voice and her cadences don’t sound like anybody I had ever heard before.”
The album comprises of 14-track. “When I was building the album, I remember hearing from multiple people that it needs to be cohesive, cohesive, cohesive, and I kind of let that get to my head,” Jessie Reyez said. “But my entire time as an artist, I’ve always been a child of polarities. It’s innately in me to want to yell and love at the same time. I haven’t been compromising this whole time as an artist.”
Also, the album features a song “La Memoria” in Spanish. “It’s in my face, it’s in my blood, it’s in my dark hair, it’s in my brown skin,” she said. “It’s in the way that my soul lifts up when I hear Colombia. It’s in the way that I hug my mom. My parents purposely kept me connected to our roots, our blood.”
- She was supposed to support Billie Eilish's "Where Do We Go?" tour in March and April, but the tour was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. “I feel weird promoting in these times,” she said. “It feels like music is kind of minuscule in comparison to what’s going on.”
Also she wrote with a photo of diagnose in a hospital on social media, “This post isn’t meant to give you fear. It’s meant to give insight beyond what we see infront of us. There are leaders who aren’t making the correct decisions for their communities. This could last months if it’s not controlled now. You have to think of the greater good and what’s to come if we don’t handle this properly and together as a large scale community. Stay home, if you can’t stay home then just do the essential shit but don’t go to a party, actually try the social distancing, if you just got back from another country, self quarantine yourself for two weeks, do your part. It’s infuriating to see people not taking this seriously. Its not about you not getting it, it’s about the health care system collapsing when it’s beyond full capacity.”
