Jessie Reyez, "Crazy"

Just over a month after releasing her powerful musical production “Far Away,” Jessie Reyez blessed her fans with yet another impactful video for her new tune “Crazy,” released Thursday (Nov. 21).

Paying tribute to Patsy Cline’s 1961 country classic, Reyez dropped her own modern soulful version, which arrived as part of Apple Music’s Up Next program. “Crazy” will form part of Reyez’s debut studio album, slated for an early 2020 release via FMLY/Island.

The gruesome music video shows Reyez covered in blood and fighting for her life after an intense argument with what seems to be her abusive boyfriend.

“Crazy” comes one day after the Canadian-Colombian singer received the news that her sophomore EP Being Human in Public was nominated for best urban contemporary album at the Grammys.

“I was sleeping,” she tells Billboard of how she received the news. “My team showed up with a doughnut and a camera and my parents screaming congrats outside my hotel door. I was like wtf happened!?”

For Reyez, being a Grammy nominee has been a lifelong dream. “The nomination means a lot. I cried,” she admits. “It’s something I’ve thought about since I was a kid. I could say it’s an honor to be nominated, but this kid wants to win!”

Reyez will perform "Crazy" on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday night. Watch the music video below.
