Jessie Reyez will be featured starting Nov. 15, 2019, in Apple Music’s monthly Up Next program, aimed at showcasing rising talent.
Reyez is the first Canadian female singer to become an Up Next artist. As part of the program, she’ll perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Nov. 21, 2019, as part of an Apple Music initiative to create curated music content.
In her history with Apple Music, Reyez had her breakout hit song “Figures” premiered by Zane Lowe on Apple’s Beats 1 program. Altogether, her music has earned more than 325 million streams on Apple Music alone.
Said Reyez about the recognition, “Honestly, Apple is a giant — I’m working to be one — so I appreciate them putting me on their shoulders as the next Up Next artist.”
Apple Music host Nadeska Alexis said, “In addition to her raw talent, the honesty in her songwriting makes her extremely relatable. On ‘Far Away,’ for example, she tackles something as universal as romantic relationships and as culturally important as immigration, with ease.”
