Following last month's MTV VMA's performance of 'Apple Juice’, a remixed release of ‘Body Count’ featuring Kehlani and Normani, appearances at US festivals AFROPUNK and Made In America, two notable features on Eminem's newest album Kamikaze and now topping over 230m streams worldwide, Jessie Reyez has announced that her second EP, Being Human in Public, is set to be released on October 19th 2018 via Polydor / FMLY. Additionally, today she's shared another new track, ‘F*ck Being Friends’, to kick off the sale of her North American ‘Being Human on Tour’ autumn dates. The 29 date trek will take her across North America starting October 10th and wrapping with a hometown show at Torontos Danforth Music Hall on December 3rd.
In the past year alone Reyez has continued to make a name for herself with hit singles, a support run on Halsey's US tour, and performances at a plethora of music festivals. Reyez has not only continued to get recognized by both critics and peers alike but has remained to stand out amongst them. Having won Canada's most prestigious Juno music award for 2018's Breakthrough Artist and getting nominated for two 2018 MTV Video Music Awards including Push Artist of the Year and Video With A Message for her standout and empowering music video ‘Gatekeeper,’ from 2017's debut EP Kiddo. Jessie continues to push the envelope while building excitement for her forthcoming EP Being Human In Public, especially with the bold and forthright new track ‘F*ck Being Friends’, which Reyez has been previewing on live dates.
