“Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and rising global superstar Jessie Reyez released her debut studio album Before Love Came To Kill Us via FMLY / Island Records to critical acclaim last spring, earning recognition from The NY Times, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Variety, and more. Already an early contender for one of the best albums of the year, it has amassed over 350M global streams, resulting as the Top Female Debut Album and Top R&B album of 2020, and charting in the Top 5 on Billboard’s R&B album chart where it has remained since release.

In the past year, Jessie has been nominated for a Grammy award for Best Urban Contemporary Album for her sophomore EP Being Human In Public, won a JUNO Award for 2020’s R&B/Soul Recording of The Year, and graced the covers of Remezcla, NME, Galore, ILY Mag, and VIBE VIVA which donned her “The People’s Pop Star.” She’s successfully headlined a tour, performed at a plethora of music festivals, supported Billie Eilish on her U.S. tour earlier this year, and brought her performances to the screen with appearances on the One World: Together At Home special broadcast and Jimmy Kimmel Live (From His House)!”
