Jessie Reyez was conflicted about dropping her debut album, Before Love Came to Kill Us, today. In fact, she still is. You get why. For one thing, there's that whole global pandemic going on, taking lives and wrecking economies and forcing us all to live indefinitely in Hobbit holes. For another, the project is kinda, sorta steeped in death. I mean, it's right there in the title. On the album's cover, the Toronto-bred singer-songwriter is posted up in a cemetery. There's also a single titled "Coffin," in which she and Eminem act out a lover's spat resolved by both parties leaping off a roof.
