Songwriter and vocal great Jazmine Sullivan have released her first project Heaux Tales since her 2015 critically acclaimed album "Reality Show" nearly six years ago. Sullivan has seen 12 Grammy nominations and put out three stellar albums since 2008.
On her latest album, Sullivan tells the unabashed stories and unique experiences that aren’t just exclusive to her life, but to women everywhere. "I wrote Heaux Tales to give voice to every woman. We’re deserving of respect whether we as a C.E.O. of a company or if we stripping. It’s about unity. It’s about boldness. It’s about ownership and confidence and also vulnerability and self-reflection," explains Sullivan.
Jazmine’s first project in six years features appearances from Anderson. Paak, H.E.R., and Ari Lennox.
She celebrated Heaux Tales release with a performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert. Accompanied by her band and background vocalists, the Philly songstress put her powerful pipes on display while performing a stripped-down selection of songs off the conceptual project. Wearing a trench coat, she opened her 20-minute set with “Bodies (Intro)” before delivering “The Other Side” and “Lost One.”
