Along with Daniel Caesar, Jessie Reyez has been making waves all around the world in 2017 thanks to her excellent EP Kiddo. The talented singer-songwriter and graduate of Toronto's Remix Project seems to pour every drop of emotion she has into each song whether its dealing with love for her family (on "Great One") or industry sexual harrassment (on "Gatekeeper"). It's hard to deny the authenticity of it all, especially when listening to the minute-long interlude of her parents singing happy birthday to her in Spanish. Outside of Kiddo, Reyez had other career highlights this year that included performing at the BET Awards and working with none other than Calvin Harris; not bad for a kid from Brampton who, just three years ago, was bartending and busking on the beach in Florida to pay her bills.
