Jessie Reyez must have wondered what happened to her when she woke up on 31 December 2018. Everything the Canadian artist with Colombian roots touched in recent months has literally turned to gold. She co-wrote two big hits with Calvin Harris. ‘One Kiss’, her collab with Dua Lipa, was the best-selling single of 2018 in the UK and Belgium. Soon after she released ‘Promises’ with Stan Smith. Reyez was a guest vocalist on Lewis Capaldi’s ‘Rush’ and on two tracks on Eminem’s album ‘Kamikaze’ on which she also collaborated as a songwriter. So she hit the jackpot five times in just 365 days. And on top of that she was named breakthrough artist of the year in Canada. While Reyez is proud of her achievements, she has managed to cope very well with her sudden fame. Her motto? ‘I like to sing about shit I don’t like to talk about’.
