Canadian songstress Jessie Reyez just released her full-size debut album and felt that this is a right time to say thank you to people who helped her along the road and made this release possible.
Eminem is one of these people. The GOAT who featured her on two of his tracks and who publicly gives props to her talent and the raw energy she emanates. Jessie appreciates that and addresses him with this emotional message:
