Diehard fans of Jazmine Sullivan are well versed with her collection of releases over the past ten years, with many of them lauding work found aboard her sophomore and junior albums – ‘Love Me Back’ and ‘Reality Show’ – as some of the best R&B offerings of the century.
But while the genre’s radio and airplay Billboard charts have featured some of her more critically acclaimed offerings over the same time period (i.e. ‘Let It Burn,’ ‘Forever Don’t Last,’ ’10 Seconds,’ etc.), Pop charts have largely ignored the GRAMMY nominee.
After a decade long absence, the refreshed Hot 100 reveals that neglect has come to an end thanks to tunes found aboard her latest body of work, the January 8-released ‘Heaux Tales’ (click here to stream).
‘Pick Up Your Feelings’ and ‘Girl Like Me’ (featuring H.E.R.) – the second and third releases from Sullivan’s ‘Heaux Tales’ EP – cracked the fourth quadrant of the Hot 100 this week, entering at #95 and #97 respectively.
The feat marks the singer’s first appearance on the tally since her 2010 hit, ‘Holding You Down (Goin’ in Circles),’ peaked at #60.
This isn’t the only good chart news Jazmine received this week.
As we reported here, ‘Heaux Tales’ debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 this week, a win that marks the highest rung she’s reached on that hitlist to date.
