"Heaux Tales" Is Jazmine Sullivan's Newest Symbol Of Boldness

The compelling R&B songstress returns with her latest EP six years after widespread critically acclaimed album 'Reality Show', delivering her take with storytelling on representation of women whilst highlighting moments of confidence and fearlessness.

Heaux Tales is Jazmine Sullivan's newest symbol of resilience that uses the spoken-word stories of six women to begin some of the tracks creating with previously released singles such as "Lost One", "Pick Up Your Feelings" and recent release "Girl Like Me" which guest features long-time fan H.E.R., each of the songs delve into their own moods and stories to convey the feelings of women today that now unapologetically assert themselves.


With a track-list that includes featuring artists Ari Lennox (who additionally features in one of the six spoken word tales), Anderson.Paak and H.E.R this EP is filled with mesmerising blend of Jazz, R&B with overlapping harmonies and downtempo rhythms.


Speaking on the project Sullivan 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."


In the years building up to this release its clear that Jazmine Sullivan has wanted to show women standing up as a collective, as a sign of strength and power and the idea of the complicated relationship dynamic from the perspective of these women.
