Jessie Reyez Sets The ‘Mood’ With New Song + Video: Look + Listen

Grammy-nominated R&B singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez has worked with super-talents Beyoncé, Eminem, as well as film director Alfonso Cuarón, and her ability to emote raw heartbreak comes through in her brand new spellbinding “Mood.”

The first song on second studio album Yessie, starts with sincere lyrics as she sing-raps, “I get along with most men, more than I do with some women,” followed by a story of crushing betrayal by a female friend: “I had a snake in the grass pretending to be my sister.”

Unlike the artist’s prior work, in her current chorus, Reyez incorporates a high-pitched sample of “Los Caminos de la Vida,” the Colombian classic by Los Diablitos, composed in 1992 by the Afro-Colombian singer Omar Geles that’s been remade across Latin America as an anthem about the unexpected turns life can take.

Toward the end of “Mood,” Jessie sings about moving on with grace and finding relief from the pain she’s in. “I needed that hate, ’cause those ingredients make the underdog great.” The moment captures Reyez walking out of the shadows and into the rest of her album, where  she’s actively seeking light.
