Jessie Reyez Unveils Biting New Song, ‘F*** Being Friends,’ Plots North American Tour

The song is the fourth single off her upcoming EP, ‘Being Human in Public’

Following a spellbinding performance at the MTV Music Video Awards and multiple features on Eminem’s latest record, Kamikaze, Jessie Reyez returns with her tough new track, “F*** Being Friends.” It’s the fourth single off her upcoming bilingual EP, Being Human in Public.

Set to a sticky beat, the playful inflection in her voice is more baleful than anything else, as she circles a non-committal partner like a hawk does its prey. “You ain’t scared to fuck but you scared of being lovers?” she sings, cornering the object of her affections (and frustrations) with her heart on her sleeve. When it comes to calling foul play in the battle of the sexes, Reyez is pop’s reigning heavyweight champ.

“We have to do more than talk about [sexual assault],” Reyez told Rolling Stone in a recent interview. “More people at the top need to make conscious decisions about who they work with. These things have to resonate after the headlines stop being fashionable. It’s not cool to just talk about it anymore.”

Being Human in Public is set for release October 19th. The singer-songwriter is also plotting a 29-date North American tour, kicking off October 11th in Edmonton, Alberta.
