Watch Jessie Reyez and 6Lack’s Video for “Imported”
Jessie Reyez is the next star to be on the lookout for, but she’s been pacing and waiting her turn ever since she released her Being Human in Public EP last year. Now it seems like the proper time to ready her up for a prompt and steady release evidenced by re-packaging her “Imported” track as a duet with East Atlanta’s 6Lack. Together they try to convince a lover in-between relationships to forget about that old flame by getting cozy with them for the time being.
Their chemistry is at peak form at the start of the video and it never strays far from it’s original impact. I hope this is the beginning of a strong industry relationship because they are both so incredibly talented. Reyez has all the makings of a household name as she has an incredibly soothing and sultry voice, but her lyrics are often confrontational and challenge the status quo. Look to her to be the one of the leading voices of the next trend in popular music, as women of all backgrounds continue to re-engineer the often male-dominated music industry into something they can feel comfortable being themselves in.
