Weekend Track: “Everything Reminds Me of You” by Tessanne Chin

After winning Season 5 of the hit reality music competition, The Voice last year, Jamaican songstress Tessanne Chin has officially released the debut track “Everything Reminds Me of You” off her upcoming studio album . The song is one that speaks about her reminiscing over her past lover and how everything she encounters brings back memories of the times they had. We were expecting something reminiscent of her rock era when she just came on the scene in Jamaica with tracks like “When I’m With You,” but this track will do.
