Jessie Reyez marked the release of her highly-anticipated sophomore album, “YESSIE,” by hosting an exclusive album release party at No Vacancy in Los Angeles on Thursday night (Sept. 15), which drew the likes of Drake, Diddy, Yung Miami from CityGirls, Cordae, Diplo, Murda Beatz, Ty Dolla $ign and many more.
While the Canada connection was immediately apparent as Drake made his entrance, the two Toronto artists connected on a leaked track by Drizzy called “Zodiac Sign.”
Reyez, whose album is out via FMLY / Island Records, has been making waves in the industry since first arriving on the scene, thanks to her unique voice, intense lyrics and WYSIWYG personality. She was nominated for a Grammy for her EP, “Being Human In Public,” and took home four Juno Awards for R&B/Soul recording of the year, best video and best new artist in 2019. Reyez also boasts a cameo in Beyonce’s “Black is King” visual album.
