Jessie Reyez: Love In The Dark

By Kerry Doole

Jessie Reyez - Love In The Dark (FMLY / Island Records / UMC): The fast-rising star (and recent Grammy nominee) has announced that her full-length debut album, Before Love Came To Kill Us, arrives on March 27.


It is remarkable how far she has come with just a couple of EPs, and it is fair to say that this is one of the most anticipated Canadian albums of the year. Last fall's track and video, Far Away, packed a punch, and this new advance single will surely further fuel interest in the record.

The song begins as a sparse piano ballad built around Reyez’s distinctive breathy delivery, then surges with swelling strings and a massed vocal choir. The epic sound punctuates powerful lyrics – "And when the stars are falling down, There's love in the dark." We hear a hit here.

Reyez has yet to match the huge success of her 2016 single Figures (triple-platinum in Canada, gold in the US), but that is surely just a matter of time.

Here Are The Best Super Bowl Ads Canadians Might Have Missed

Now that the dust has settled, the biggest Super Bowl ads have made their way online, including many of the biggest names in music.

Now that the Super Bowl is finished, the Kelce brothers and Taylor Swift have (maybe) finished celebrating and the Usher halftime show has been fully processed, there’s one last thing for Canadians to catch up on: the ads.

Super Bowl ads have become more than sales pitches. They’ve become viral content on their own, with teasers often dropping days or weeks before the big game. They can herald a surprise drop of new music, or push a controversial political or religious message. In recent years, they also star many of the biggest names in music and pop culture.
