FIRST NEW SINGLE OF 2023 OUT NOW ON FMLY / ISLAND RECORDS; WATCH & LISTEN HERE
CURRENTLY SUPPORTING SAM SMITH ON NORTH AMERICAN LEG OF GLORIA THE TOUR
NEW POETRY BOOK WORDS OF A GOAT PRINCESS
SET TO ARRIVE OCTOBER 17TH
Grammy-nominated, 5x Juno-winning, singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez shares her outstanding new single “JEANS” featuring R&B icon & viral chart topper Miguel, out now on FMLY / Island Records. The stripped-back ballad is the first collaboration between Reyez and Miguel and the perfect canvas for their undeniable sonic chemistry. “JEANS” shows a mature and sexy side of Reyez – here she is both vulnerable and assured, passionately peeling back every word in “JEANS” as if baring her whole soul. Flowing over acoustic guitar and relaxed, soft drums, Miguel’s sublime vocals and innate sensuality is an effortless and eloquent culmination to the song.
Along with the new single is a steamy video, directed by Erik Rojas / BT Studios, in line with the narratives fans have seen Reyez follow before – in control and calling the shots. Here in a dusty western town, Reyez is found robbing a store and getting caught by the law. Her misdemeanors lead her to Miguel’s neighboring jail cell and that’s when sparks start to fly.
“JEANS” is Reyez’s first new music of 2023 after dropping her sophomore album YESSIE at the end of 2022 and her groundbreaking 2020 debut, Before Love Came To Kill Us. Both albums proved critical breakthroughs for Reyez, with press praise spanning from The NY Times, The New Yorker, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Variety, Forbes, Hypebeast, Complex, Uproxx, XXL, People, Elle, Glamour, Nylon, Refinery29, CBC, and more with late night TV appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and the Daily Show With Trevor Noah. Reyez continues to build a massive and loyal fanbase, now spanning over 3 billion streams worldwide across all DSPs.
Currently, Jessie Reyez can be found entertaining awestruck crowds as she accompanies transcendent pop artist Sam Smith on GLORIA the tour, a vast, 30-date run taking Reyez across North America – see below for remaining dates. Reyez took a brief pause in between tour dates to make a Lollapalooza appearance, a highlight performance from the festival weekend as she delighted the masses in a slot right before Kendrick Lamar.
Later this year, Reyez will publish her first book of poetry, Words of a Goat Princess, a natural next step for the Toronto based wordsmith with Colombian roots. Her debut promises to hold the power of relatability and inspiration found through her music, a true extension of her art onto the page. Jessie is taking her writing and speaking abilities to new platforms, including her recent TED Talk. Words of a Goat Princess is slated for October release via Simon & Schuster.
Reyez’s unmistakable voice, unmatched pen and ability to move between genres effortlessly make this track ready-made for romance in an exponentially expanding catalog of empowering anthems. Always outspoken in her art and her identity, Jessie is making her voice heard in what is to be her most formative era yet.
