Jazmine Sullivan - Heaux Tales
Jazmine Sullivan has been quietly establishing herself as one of R&B’s greatest singer for some time now. On Heaux Tales, her follow-up to 2015’s Reality Show, she uses her one-of-a-kind voice to explore female sexuality, and the role it plays in a woman’s life. She talks about both the strength (“On It”) and the weakness (“Put It Down”) sex portrays, the way sex can lead to a relationship’s downfall (“Lost One”), and how it all can have a profound effect on a woman’s sense of self-worth (“Girl Like Me”). While this may be Jazmine’s most vulnerable music yet, her voice is as strong and precise as ever. Songs like “Pick Up Your Feelings” is a great reminder that the R&B divas of the world still have a rightful place in music today.
