Today, the prayers of R&B music lovers around the world have been answered – Heaux Tales, the new project by the incomparable Jazmine Sullivan is available now via RCA Records. Click here to listen.
Sparked by lively conversations between Jazmine and her sisterfriends, Heaux Talesis a conceptual project with songs about lust, insecurities, betrayal, regret, empowerment and the desire for love and security (even if just superficial), all delivered with the intimacy, honesty and gospel-drenched, spine-tingling vocals we’ve come to expect from the Philadelphia native.
Heaux Tales includes guest appearances by H.E.R., Anderson .Paak and Ari Lennox, as Jazmine channels different characters throughout the seven songs, threaded together with several real-life tales narrated by her friends. The project features production by Key Wane, DZL, Cardiak & Wu10, J Mo, Dev Hynes, Dave “Pop” Watson, Dilemma, JoeLogic & Gee and Bongo ByTheWay.
Previously released songs from the project, “Lost One” and “Pick Up Your Feelings,” heightened the anticipation for today’s release and earned coveted spots on multiple “Best of 2020” lists including NPR, Los Angeles Times, Pitchfork, Noisey, and more.
Jazmine will bring Heaux Tales to life with performances on NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert (click here at 12pm ET today to be amazed) and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on January 12.
