Album: Before Love Came to Kill Us (2020)
Play Video


  • During this sun-kissed love song, a possessive Jessie Reyez threatens bodily harm to any other woman who comes near her man.

    So please, no intruders
    I'd kill all intruders
    'Cause my love is ruthless

    Reyez will fight and even kill for her love.
  • The animated video depicts the deep-rooted effects of colonization, showing an indigenous woman fending off a fleet of female colonizers. According to the press release, the clip "serves as an allegory for today's society and the detrimental effects brought on by governmental and economic institutions that were built on oppression and theft." Said Reyez: "Colonialism is in the mitochondria of racism."
  • Reyez donated 100% of her royalties earned from streams of the track in the US between June 18 and December 31, 2020 to the Colin Kaepernick's Know Your Rights organization.
