Jazmine Sullivan Spills On “Intimate” New Album

Published: Monday 9th Nov 2015 by Sam

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.

More below…

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:

Yes!

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.

    I am HERE for it! She should be bigger than she is right now because her VOCALS are everything it is ridiculously insane. Still love “Reality Show” as well. And it better get “Album Of The Year” at the Grammys!

      the Grammy’s will not give her any love. They never give the “real” talent grammy’s.

      Shes fat, black, not very pretty/model and not hoeish.

      Tamia, Chante Moore, Joe, Tank, Tracie Spencer….all underated

    She’s ANOTHER underrated unsung vocal goddess. Her & Keke Wyatts just be blowing for no damn reason. Sad, they’ll always be underrated. The Grammy’s should give a spotlight to these unsung ladies. Just give them a prime time slot on the actual show.

    Jazmine’s album was Ova Shacova! I live for it. The next shall be just as great. Do wish it impacted the charts

      Yes! “Ten (10) Seconds” is the jam! She went OFF in that song and evoked so much emotion through all that hollering and grunting. I love how her albums are critically acclaimed too.

    There’s absolutely no reason why an Adele is selling millions and a Jazmine Sullivan isn’t. I’ll leave it at that.

    At this rate she just open a burger joint since clearly that’s where she’s been putting her talent into.

      B*tch, a strand of Jazmine’s weave has more talent than you will ever have. Please do society a favor and go find a cliff and then Jump with no parachute!

    I think Reality Show is her BEST album to date!! Hope she gets the love she deserves from the Grammys this year.

    Reality Show was underrated and lyrically was giving me Amy Winehouse flavour with the way she told the stories. Mascara, Brand New & Silver Lining will always be classics for me.

    How dare you TGJ. Reality Show was amazing! It matched the bombast of her previous albums and most of these songs were penned by Jazmine. It was almost as if an amazing soul album was updated with some sparse hip-hop production. Please do your research TGJ. Urban isn’t playing females right now (unless your last name is Knowles, Keys, Fenty, or Maraj), and Urban AC doesn’t have enough audience impressions to chart on the Hot 100.

    Can’t wait to see what she bring for this new album & her last album was wonderful

  12. King November 9, 2015

    Yeah, I don’t know what album yall were listening to. Reality show is honestly her best album to date. The writing was superb.

    I have to support Jazmine Sullivan and her talent will not go unnoticed!!!!!! She is a real artist and I will always be slayed by her VOCALS!!!! This chick right here has never lost sight of who she is as an artist and I know she will not disappoint fans with the next project! I see you Jazmine!!!!! =)

    Captured how I felt about “Reality show” to perfection, and I love Jazmine…. But I expect more from her.
