Jessie Reyez to Appear on Sam Smith’s New Single “Gimme”

Jessie Reyez is about to gimme more…

The 31-year-old Colombian singer, who was born and raised in Canada, is joining voices with Sam Smith and Koffee for the new single “Gimme.”

Jessie ReyezSmith announced the new single over the weekend, saying it will be officially released on Wednesday, January 11.

Teasing the new track on Instagram and TikTok, Smith also shared a snippet of the song’s infectious chorus, with them and Reyez singing the word “gimme what I want” over an undulating tropical beat.

Fans of Reyez will also be excited to know that this is not the only time the R&B star will be appearing on Smith’s new album Gloria — the singer is also credited as a featured artist on the song “Perfect.”

Reyez was also announced as Smith’s special guest for their upcoming U.S. tour, which will see them hit arenas around the country this summer.

Gloria, which will be released on Friday, January 27, is marked to be something of a breakthrough for Smith in terms of songwriting and production.

Speaking to Billboard for its August cover story last year, the star said that fans can expect to hear Smith’s “first non-heartbreak album,” and that the project was centered around the concept of queer joy. “I think joy for me, and for a lot of queer people, is quite a dangerous place,” Smith said “We’re all masters of pain, and I think it’s actually a very courageous act to step into the queer joy of it all.”
