Colombian-Canadian singer and songwriter Jessie Reyez recently released a new single and music video called “Love In The Dark” from off of her forthcoming debut album entitled Before Love Came To Kill Us. Unlike the previously shared ballad, Reyez’s latest “Ankles” track features a trap beat with production by electronic duo Blvk Jvck, as well as The Monarch production team.

An emotional yet empowering break-up song, “Ankles” showcases Reyez’s raw vocals over heavy beat production and synth textures. “I’m tired of pretending that I was the guilty one,” she sings, revealing that no one can even measure up to her ankles. “I feel like in life when you’re conscious of the fact that highs and lows, black and whites, ups and downs have to exist, then sad songs have a little bit of love and even love songs have a little bit of sadness ’cause you know that love can’t last…” Reyez recently explained on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

The 15-track Before Love Came To Kill Us is expected to drop March 27. In the meantime, check out Reyez’s “Ankles.”

Elsewhere in music, Justin Bieber stopped by The Ellen Show yesterday to perform a piano version of his title track, “Changes.”
