With guest appearances from Calvin Harris (“Promises”), Eminem (“Good Guy”), and Lewis Capaldi (“Rush”), this Canadian singer produced striking collaborations in 2018. And then she released her latest EP, Being Human in Public, which deftly oscillates between sinuous pop and organic R&B. With an elastic voice and a deliciously strained timbre, Jessie Reyez sings of harassment and heartbreak without filters or shame. Her disarming honesty makes her melodies more touching each time you listen to them. Her song “Figures” recently inspired two Swiss dancers, Dakota & Nadia, whose intense choreography evoking domestic violence generated buzz worldwide and moved Jessie Reyez. “Through my music, I hope to bring strong images into people’s minds”, she says. Mission accomplished.
