Editors’ Notes On her 2018 smash “Body Count,” Jessie Reyez hit out at sexual double standards, proclaiming, “I dodge d**k on the daily.” This collection of previously released singles turns that initial shock into inspired awe. The Colombian-Canadian singer nimbly moves between R&B, hip-hop, even Spanish-language pop with a huge voice that echoes those of Amy and Gwen. Attitude and self-belief reign supreme on the EP's lone new track “Saint Nobody,” “Apple Juice,” and the multi-suite “Dear Yessie.” She examines modern love among immigrants (“Imported”) and slays a heartbreaking acoustic ballad (“Sola”) in Spanish. Kehlani and Normani join the “Body Count” remix. Being Human in Public shows Jessie Reyez to be an ambassador that pop music's long needed: a fiercely outspoken and incisive feminist of color confronting expectations and bodying tracks.
