Ahead of tonights online St. Patrick’s Day performance, Jessie Reyez let fans know how she likes her favorite drink, and who will be joining her on stage.
The 29-year-old singer, who spent her pre-fame nights as a bartender, is partnering with Jameson Irish Whiskey to host a fun, St. Patrick’s Day virtual performance tonight. The immersive show will see the Toronto native perform a “solid mix” of songs from her 2020 debut album Before Love Came to Kill Us, her 2018 EP Being Human in Public and her 2017 EP Kiddo and joining Reyez to represent her home town are her longtime pals, Junia-T and Savannah Ré.
Sponsored in part by Jameson, Reyez is also a fan of the drink and decided to let fans know how she takes it. “I love it neat or with an ice cube,” she shared. “I love how it gets it done, I love that it’s smooth, I love that it don’t give me no hangovers. It’s the one drink where I was like, this is great, I have a good time and a nice, mellow vibe. You don’t get a hangover. I’m lit, I’m good.”
