August 24, 2016

Yesterday Jessie Reyez premiered her new single "Figures" on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show and today she's sharing the video. The clip is a minimal one, Reyez sitting at a chair, belting out the emotionally raw tune. Set to just a lone guitar it's all about her aching vocal take, which makes for an arresting visual as she stares down the camera.

"I was in Sweden, which was dope, but some shit was going on back home. One day I ended up low key crying on the song. Shy Carter and Preist and the beast were in the room but I wiped the tears quick and just kept going. I'd like to say I felt better after.. I didn't lol but at least something was made from it. Like getting punched in the stomach but deciding to bake a cake."
