It’s been nearly six years since the R&B singer dropped her last album, “Reality Show” in January of 2015.
On Friday Jan.8, Jazmine Sullivan made her debut back on to the scene with her new project Heaux Tales. The 14 track album includes features from other R&B sensations such as Ari Lennox ( On It) , Anderson Paak (Price Tags) and H.E.R. (Girl Like Me)
In a press statement Sullivan shared her intentions behind creating the album, she stated,
I wrote Heaux Tales to give a voice to every woman. We’re deserving of respect whether we work as a CEO of a company or we stripping. It’s about unity. It’s about boldness. It’s about ownership and confidence and also about vulnerability and self reflection. It’s about a woman deciding how she wants to present herself to the world and not being told or influenced by anyone but her gotdamn self. It’s about women writing their own imperfect stories. Unashamed.” She also adds “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.”
The album is now available for purchase or download on streaming platforms.
