One of Aotearoa's elite hip-hop forces, JessB returns with new single 'Can’t Fake It'!

A high-octane confidence oozes as JessB speaks straight from the heart, with a dynamo attitude and optimistic outlook of resilience. Produced by MOW Music 'Can’t Fake It' is an epic comeback for the NZ-based MC and ushers in a heaving house perspective that will make you wanna turn up any day of the week. 

JessB notes on the track, “After the ‘3 Nights In Amsterdam’ EP & two years of lockdowns I was finally able to get back and have 7 more nights in Amsterdam to make some fun tracks with one of my favourite producers. A lighthearted club banger for ya head top.”

 After a stacked past two years, JessB continues to add accolades to her ever-growing list. From joining forces with OKENYO to remix global star Saweetie’s collaboration with Doja Cat, 'Best Friend' which now runs platinum, to re-working US Dancehall artist Kranium’s wavy single 'Toxic'.

Jess’ rise through the ranks of hip-hop is attributed to her energetic, outspoken style, and a sound cultivated over years in the business. Jess became the first female MC to appear on Red Bull 64 Bars in 2017, and has since represented NZ hip-hop on stages in London, Amsterdam, LA and New York. From festival performances at Spotify A1 Live, Red Bull Music Festival, Splendour in the Grass to Laneway Festival, and as an opening rapper for high-profile international acts Lil Simz, Stormzy, YG, BENEE, and more, Jess’ stage presence precedes her.

Most recently, JessB has toured Europe and appeared at a virtual International Women’s Day Conference hosted by Saweetie. Additionally, JessB holds MTV European Music Award for Best New Zealand Act to her name. She's gone from one to watch to a force to be reckoned with!
