Jazmine Sullivan Releases Love Me Back

Seven time Grammy-nominee, 23-year-old Philadelphia native Jazmine Sullivan delivers beyond expectations on her new album, Love Me Back – a vibrant, musically diverse collection that sets soulful R&B melodies to inventive, hip-hop-inspired beats. Her 2008 debut album Fearless bowed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and spawned three Top 10 singles.

Love Me Back is a rich showcase for Sullivan’s powerhouse vocals and unique storytelling gifts on songs like “Redemption,” “Good Enough,” the Missy Elliott-produced “Holding You Down (Goin’ In Circles),” and “Don’t Make Me Wait,” which boasts an ’80s-style rhythmic backdrop that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Prince album. Once again, Sullivan co-wrote every song, collaborating with her early champions Missy Elliott and Salaam Remi, as well as Ne-Yo, Toby Gad, Chuck Harmony, No-ID, Anthony Bell, and Cainon Lamb, who bring out the best in this self-assured performer whom Vibe has called “every inch the soul star.”
