Out Today: Jazmine Sullivan



Jazmine Sullivan "Lions & Tigers" Live @ The Knitting Factory 9/17/08

"Why Do We love Love, when Love seems to hate Us..."

Now I haven't heard this whole project, but everything I've heard thus far is pointing to a very strong debut for Jazmine Sullivan. Out of all the tracks I've heard, "Lions & Tigers" is by far my favorite. If you've frequented Trackademia for a while, you've probably noticed my affinity for artist who put themselves out there emotionally.

If I can't feel it, I don't feel it.

With that said, "Lions & Tigers" puts Jazmine at the top of my list at the moment.

Tap played this song for me a while back, and like always, it took its time to take impact. I must say that Salaam Remi is so damn underrated its ridiculous.

The main reason I'm writing this is because of the message. Its not the first time someone is asking these questions. What I love is the honesty and vulnerability in the execution. For me, the payoff is in the bridge, both conceptually and musically. In whatever it is, sometimes you have to take a chance. I agree 100% with her...

I don't usually bet, but this goes out to the risk takers and high rollers...

Alright, once again, enough antics.
