JESSIE REYEZ RELEASES NEW EP BEING HUMAN IN PUBLIC VIA FMLY / ISLAND
Toronto based singer and songwriter Jessie Reyez has released her sophomore EP Being Human in Public via FMLY / Island. The EP showcases some of her most personal and intimate moments throughout her life and is a collection of singles that Reyez shared this past summer such as “Apple Juice,” “Sola,” “Body Count Remix” feat. Kehlani and Normani, “Fuck Being Friends,” “Dear Yessie”, “Imported” featuring JRM, and the final song from the EP “Saint Nobody” out today.
In the past year alone, Reyez has made quite a name for herself with releasing a string of critically acclaimed songs, a support run on Halsey’s US tour, performances at a plethora of music festivals, and collaborations with many notable artists from Eminem to Daniel Caesar. Reyez continues to be recognized by both critics and peers alike while remaining to be a stand out amongst them.
Reyez kicked off the Fall season by embarking on her headlining North American tour “Being Human on Tour” on October 11th with a sold-out show in Edmonton, Alberta. The 30 date trek has sold-out in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Santa Ana, two shows in Los Angeles, Denver, Dallas, Miami, Milwaukee, Chicago, Washington D.C., New York, Boston, Montreal, and two hometown shows in Toronto. Due to popular demand additional dates were added to the Los Angeles and Toronto dates and shows have been upgraded to bigger venues in Houston, Detroit, Baltimore, and in London, Ontario. The tour will wrap with two sold out hometown shows at Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall on December 3rd and December 4th. Tickets are on sale now along with a limited number of VIP Experience packages still available in Montreal, the rest of the tour’s VIP Experience packages have sold out – check www.jessiereyez.com for more info.
The excitement that ignited her fast-selling tour is no surprise after she won Canada’s most prestigious Juno music award for 2018’s Breakthrough Artist earlier this year and performed “Apple Juice” at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, where she was also nominated for two awards including the Push Artist of the Year and Video With A Message for her standout and empowering music video “Gatekeeper,” from 2017’s debut EP Kiddo. Reyez was also recently nominated for the upcoming 2018 MTV Europe Awards for Best New Artist and Best Push Artist. Reyez has kept fans on their toes by releasing one hot track after another, building high anticipation for listeners who will not be disappointed when experiencing the remaining tracks of Being Human in Public.
It was also a busy summer for Reyez with appearances at all the major music festivals including Outside Lands, Lollapalooza, AFROPUNK, Made In America, and Bonnaroo, and two notable features on iconic hip hop artist Eminem’s surprise album release Kamikaze. The singer and songwriter has collaborated with other artists including Daniel Caesar (“Figures, A Reprise”), Sam Smith (“Promises”) and Calvin Harris (“Hard to Love”) who she co-wrote Dua Lipa’s summer hit “One Kiss” with. Reyez has proven to be a force to be reckoned with, garnering the talent, work ethic, and no-holds barred mantra that is admired by fans and artists worldwide.
