Jazmine Sullivan worked with H.E.R. on “Girl Like Me” from Heaux Tales
Jazmine Sullivan‘s first project since 2015, Heaux Tales, is out today via RCA Records. The Philly singer-songwriter teased the release earlier in the week with a new single, featuring H.E.R., that captures the album’s spirit of empowerment.
Sullivan says of the album, “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. Women are over feeling ashamed about the decision we have made, or chose to make, in regards to our bodies.”
Sullivan also told fans that, despite the release’s 14-song length, it falls in the “EP” zone, hinting that something bigger is on the way:
Sullivan also performed a five-song Tiny Desk (Home) concert for NPR Music that was released today, and includes the single, as well as “Bodies (Intro),” “The Other Side,” “Lost One” and “Let It Burn.” Watch it and listen to to “Girl Like Me” below; and check Heaux Tales in full here.
