While Grammy Award-nominated singer and songwriter, Jessie Reyez. Has continued to give us several new music videos, performances and other content. From her very critically-acclaimed and long-awaited debut album, BEFORE LOVE CAME TO KILL US. That she dropped last Spring.
It has been quite awhile. Since we have actually heard any new material from Reyez. That all changed recently though. As we got the closest thing to new material. When her and fellow Toronto-based singer and songwriter, grandson. Recently collaborated on the lead single, Rain. From the soundtrack to the upcoming highly-anticipated Summer movie, The Suicide Squad.
Now a little over a month after releasing the song. grandson and Reyez return with the debut earlier today. Of the crazy and ass-kicking new accompanying video for the very amazing collaboration between both artists. That sees both unseen footage from the movie paired with scenes from grandson and Reyez. In a parallel narrative that finds them in a club with Reyez dancing and grandson watching on. Right before being roughed up by some very large paramilitary goons and the actual Suicide Squad is indisposed.
The crazy and ass-kicking new visual takes another turn. When it leads up to both, grandson and Reyez taking matters into their own hands. In the bar by kicking the goons ass with a fancy, shiny battle axe. That turns into a big blowout of leaves that helps neutralize and cover those goons in flowers. Both, grandson and Reyez getting to live out those fantasies. A lot of us have as kids of slaying bad guys and being a rock star. Actual rain of course pouring down on, grandson and Reyez to close the visual. As the sing the very big Rock star type closing verses.
