EDITORS’ NOTES

On her 2018 smash “Body Count,” Jessie Reyez hit out at sexual double standards, proclaiming, “I dodge d**k on the daily.” This collection of previously released singles turns that initial shock into inspired awe. The Colombian-Canadian singer nimbly moves between R&B, hip-hop, even Spanish-language pop with a huge voice that echoes those of Amy and Gwen. Attitude and self-belief reign supreme on the EP's lone new track “Saint Nobody,” “Apple Juice,” and the multi-suite “Dear Yessie.” She examines modern love among immigrants (“Imported”) and slays a heartbreaking acoustic ballad (“Sola”) in Spanish. Kehlani and Normani join the “Body Count” remix. Being Human in Public shows Jessie Reyez to be an ambassador that pop music's long needed: a fiercely outspoken and incisive feminist of color confronting expectations and bodying tracks.

Glad to have found you!

I want to thank Eminem for introducing me to Jessie Reyez. Her parts on his song “Nice Guy” are some of my favorite parts. Very catchy!

I haven’t had a chance yet to listen to this entire album yet (just bought it), but I like what I’m hearing lyrically. It has more grit & salt than your typical radio friendly female artists like say, Rihanna.

If I don’t return to say I don’t like the album as a whole then assume I loved it. Maybe to be continued...
