Jazmine Sullivan returns to top of charts with ‘Heaux Tales’

Project debuts at No. 1 on R&B Album chart

This week, multi-Grammy-nominated powerhouse singer/songwriter Jazmine Sullivan makes her triumphant return to the top of the charts with her latest project Heaux Tales. Released January 8th via RCA Records, Heaux Tales debuted at No. 1 on the R&B Albums chart, No. 2 on the R&B/Hip Hop chart and No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. Heaux Tales marks Sullivan’s second No. 1 R&B Albums chart debut, fifth Top 5 R&B/Hip-Hop Albums debut and her highest debut on the Billboard 200 chart.

With vulnerable lyrics and candid spoken word tales revolving around empowerment, lust, insecurity, loss and superficial desire, the long-awaited project not only resonated with fans and fellow creatives (Issa Rae, Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Summer Walker and more), but also topped several “best of” weekly lists. Selected as the New York Times Critic’s Pick, the outlet professed, “Sullivan’s music carries the churchy, high-stakes emotionality and down-to-earth detail of vintage Southern soul into the everyday situations and electronic soundscapes of hip-hop,” while Pitchfork stated “[s]he is in full command of her spectacular voice and totally delivers on an ambitious concept.” The Fader cited “[w]e don’t usually put an artist in the ‘Songs You Need’ playlist two weeks in a row, but the new Jazmine Sullivan project is just that good,” as “Girl Like Me” featuring H.E.R. and “The Other Side” made their popular list.

Sullivan will join Eric Church to perform the National Anthem as part of the Super Bowl LV pregame festivities at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay on Sunday, February 7th. The pre-game show will air nationally on CBS and will be broadcast live worldwide.
