JesseRay – Empty Rooms [Video]

Toronto, ON – Last week we dropped a review of JesseRay’s recent 1990 project release. And the Internet exploded over it. So this week, we’re bringing you some dope visuals that launched last month for the track “Empty Rooms.”

For those of you who aren’t familiar, JesseRay used to be in the Bullies n Nerdz crew with Abel Tesfaye (aka: The Weeknd). But now he does solo work; solo work that makes emotions happen, and stuff. Check it below.

JesseRay - Empty Rooms [Video] -

This video exemplifies everything I love about JesseRay: provocative use of Yeezus auto tune, skin-to-skin action (but the video is totally safe for work; sort of; okay not really), and feelings – so many feelings. As soon as JesseRay starts crooning, the panties start dropping. Strange phenomenon, right? But take that with a grain of salt. Because the track is (after all) entitled “Empty Rooms.” So even though JesseRay is fornicating with this total dime, he feels like he is in an empty room.
