While 2015 has brought with it explosive comebacks for the likes of Adele and Janet Jackson, it also saw a quiet, yet well-received return for Jazmine Sullivan.
The singer’s ‘Reality Show’ album was showered with praise from critics and fans alike, but didn’t impact the charts as perhaps hoped. A point particularly notable given the five year gap between its release and that of its predecessor – 2010’s ‘Love Me Back.’
Still, hoping to build on the buzz of the LP and its accompanying tour, Sullivan is gearing up to return to the studio for what she’s billed as an “intimate” LP.
The news came courtesy of the songbird herself, who spilled the tea to our friends over at Hip-Hollywood at the Soul Train Awards this past weekend:
For all the love ‘Reality Show’ received, it didn’t quite connect with us in the way it did with others. Sonically, little on it packed the punch of a ‘Bust Your Windows’ or the lyrical density of ‘Lions, Tigers, and Bears.’ What’s more, each of its videos were…unfortunate.
With a new album, though, comes a fresh slate. As such, we hope Jazmine manages to get her groove back.
