Los Angeles, CA (April 23, 2020)- Grammy-nominated Toronto native Colombian Canadian singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez shares a new video from her debut album Before Love Came To Kill Us, out now via FMLY / Island. Directed by Peter Huang, “SAME SIDE“, is a vivid and cathartic revenge anthem surrounding the frustrations and anger that stem from infidelity. The video serves as the prequel to the video for the Patsy Cline influenced “Crazy” and features Jessie anxiously waiting to seek vengeance on her previous lover following a heartbreaking relationship.
With her critically acclaimed debut album Before Love Came To Kill Us, Jessie offers a gripping, expansive, and passionate body of work that provides an inside look at the turbulent emotional experiences brought on by love, loss, identity, mortality, religion, and politics. The album included previously released singles “Ankles” “Imported” ft. 6lack, her platinum smash “Figures” and a new standout track “Coffin” ft. Grammy award-winning artist Eminem. The debut resonated with both fans and critics alike and has amassed over 350M global streams upon release, 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.
Shortly after the album’s release, a deluxe version followed with three additional tracks and features from A-Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, JID, Rico Nasty, and Melii. Jessie recently performed a stripped-down performance during the One World: Together At Home special broadcast on April 18th, a curated event by Lady Gaga and in partnership with Global Citizen and the World Health Organization in support of frontline healthcare workers and the U.N. Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund. Prior to the special broadcast, Jessie partnered with her friends at Jameson Irish Whiskey to host a virtual album release live stream performance via YouTube Live in an effort to raise funds for those in need amid the Covid-19 global pandemic and also performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live (From His House).
