Jessie Reyez has been quiet in press while releasing her first videos and her debut EP, Kiddo. Today, she shared a short film based on her personal experience from coming up in the music industry -it’s the footage from which the “Gatekeeper” video came.
It’s a strong message to young women that they can make it in the music industry without succumbing to pressure or becoming a sexual assault statistic. Please take a few minutes to watch this important film and read the note Jessie wrote to her attempted perpetrator.
