Jessie Reyez is one of Canada's fastest rising stars, and it only takes a few moments to understand why. Her catalogue of music may be small, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in quality. Along with her excellent debut project, Kiddo, Reyez has solidified her come up this year with appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and a guest spot on Calvin Harris' recent album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. Despite these high-profile cosigns, the Toronto songstress has made her biggest mark through a series of impressive visuals.
Back in May, Jessie dropped a powerful short film called, "Gatekeeper", which examined and combated the seedy nature of the music industry. It was an incredibly moving look into a very unfortunate reality, and it showcased Reyez' ability to tell an engaging, unnerving, and important story through moving pictures.
Jessie dropped another little film today, this time for the Kiddo cut "Great One" and unsurprisingly, it's excellent. On Instagram, the artist shared her inspiration behind the video which was shot in beautiful Colombia. "This piece literally has my everything in it," she told followers. "It has my roots. It speaks of family. It speaks of life and death. It speaks of God. Thank you to everyone involved who helped bring this to reality."
