Jazmine Sullivan is often recognizable by her love fueled temper-tantrum lyrics: throwing bricks through windows, giving her man a 10 second countdown to run for his life, or just loudly expressing some 'You-did-me-wrong' anger. So we're thrilled to see this other side of Jazmine, the loving side, who's gonna remind her man exactly why he puts up with her moods. [via Okayplayer via SoulBounce]
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."
Jazmine Sullivan's sophomore album is coming up on November 2nd, titled Love Me Back. This new single "10 Seconds" carries Sullivan's powerful emotional style, also evident in the previous single "Holding You Down."
