Jessie Reyez Kills It On Seth Meyers With ‘Gatekeeper’

Andrew Santiago

Singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez once encountered a music producer that promised to bring her to the next level, if only she would accept his sexual advances. She fought back, said no, and later wrote the song “Gatekeeper” about the experience. In an interview with Hard Knock TV, she said the experience made her question whether or not she really had what it took to be in the music business. As a testament to sticking to your guns, this week, she performed that very song about that very encounter on national television for the first time on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”

Take that, gatekeeper.

Back in May, Reyez posted a documentary to her YouTube page about the encounter.

The singer wrote on Twitter that she was “a liddo sick.” Then decided in the same thought, “but fuck it let’s get it.” That’s the spirit! No gatekeeper or flu is going to keep her down.


She had enough energy to follow that song with her Billboard-charting first single, “Figures.”

With her unique sound and those sharp lyrics, this kid is going places. And we’re down for the ride.

Keep your eyes peeled for her.
