Six years may have separated fans of Jazmine Sullivan from her last project, 2015’s ‘Reality Show,’ but that wait came to a much-desired end with the January 8-release of the singer’s new EP, ‘Heaux Tales.’
Launched on the backs of critically acclaimed singles ‘Lost One,’ ‘Pick Up Your Feelings,’ and the H.E.R.-assisted ‘Girl Like Me,’ ‘Tales’ stands as a 14-track affair that boasts appearances from the likes of Anderson .Paak, Ari Lennox, and more.
An empowering conceptual project (which she stresses isn’t an album) is designed around Sullivan’s “observation of today’s women standing in their power and owning who they are,” the GRAMMY-nominated diva took to press recently to further detail her inspiration behind the effort.
“No longer is male patriarchy dictating what it means to be a ‘good girl.’ The truth is, women of all ages have been called a ‘heaux’ at some point in life, whether deserved or not, by some man trying to put us in our place; a place designed to keep us under control, out of the way and usually beneath them,” she expounded.
For your listening pleasure, ‘Heaux Tales’ awaits inside for streaming via Spotify and Apple Music.
