Jessie Reyez remains true to her notoriously candid aura in today’s release.
She opens the record singing, “Fight just to f**k just to fight again / World war three justified in bed / Mess me up, now we ain’t even friends / But the truth is I’m kind of tired of pretending that I was the guilty one…“
Reyez aurally captures raw, unvarnished emotion not only through her frank lyricism but her soul-seizing vocals.
For the chorus she emphasizes her irreplaceable nature singing, “Lights out, Strike out, I doubt You’ll ever find anyone / These bitches can’t measure up to my ankles…“
This record will be featured on her debut album Before Love Came to Kill Us, set to release on March 27 via FMLY/Island Records. It’s a banger for the self-assured and fed up; indulge above.
