Jessie Reyez, "Love in the Dark" (4 min)
It’s a golden age for Canadian R&B music, and Toronto’s Jessie Reyez is one of the scene’s brightest stars, with critical and commercial accolades including a Grammy nomination, multiple Juno Awards, collaborations with Eminem and writing a number one hit for acclaimed producer Calvin Harris. The 29-year-old singer and songwriter was just named to the Polaris Music Prize short list for her debut album, "When Love Came to Kill Us", which was accompanied by a series of cinematic, highly impactful music videos. While much of her video work could be classified as short films, often with violent narratives, this clip for her single “Love in the Dark” is beauty simplified, with Reyez swimming under the shadows or mountains and a galaxy of stars.
