Jessie Reyez Drops “Body Count” Remix feat Kehlani and Normani – Listen Here!
Jessie Reyez earned yet another career milestone moment this week with her debut performance at the 2018 MTV VMA’s, performing new single “Apple Juice”, and today celebrates that achievement with the release of a new remix version of her wildly popular single “Body Count”, featuring two other current female pop / R&B icons, Kehlani and Normani. Much like her win at the 2018 JUNO Awards, where she performed “Figures; A Reprise” featuring fellow Torontonian Daniel Caesar, and took home the award for Breakthrough Artist, Reyez crowned the moment with the release of the remix that gives a whole new life to the song.
All three women found a connection through “Body Count”, a self-love anthem penned by Reyez and released earlier this year with an official video that had press such as Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pigeons & Planes, Noisey, HypeBeast, Hot New Hip Hop, VIBE, OkayPlayer and more championing the song and video. The official video found Reyez at the center of a “witch trial” scene, where she was taken to the stake for her supposed crimes committed. Both the song and the video are an homage to Reyez’s outspoken stance that we should all get to “love who we wanna love” and feel empowered by that.
Gearing up for the release of a new EP, Being Human In Public slated for Fall on FMLY / Island, Reyez has been sharing new tracks and content and making waves with her live performances on the road, opening for Halsey in North America and hitting major festivals such as Lollapalooza and Outside Lands, with upcoming performances at this weekend’s AFROPUNK in Brooklyn, next weekend’s Made In America in Philadelphia and more. Reyez has been playing both new and old songs on the road, including her breakthrough singles “Figures” and “Gatekeeper” from her debut Kiddo EP, alongside new tracks “Apple Juice” and her first Spanish-language release, “Sola”. Catch all on her upcoming dates below and stay tuned for more news from Reyez coming soon.
