For such a young career, singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez has had an interesting path to mainstream music. Her interest in music started with playing the guitar as a child in Toronto, then later writing her own music in high school. She left Canada for Miami after graduating, only to come home and pursue her dreams in 2014. This lead to her releasing the song “Figures” in 2016, which is currently at 16 million streams and counting on Spotify and 334,000 Soundcloud plays. “Figures” centers a heartbroken Reyez, wishing she could feel less embarrassed about dedicating herself to an untrustworthy lover.
