Hot off the heels of her Twitter-trending performance on the 2020 Soul Train Awards, twelve-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jazmine Sullivan announces today that her long-awaited new project Heaux Tales will be released on January 8 via RCA Records.
Centering around the polarizing term that has been the crux of heated conversations for decades, Heaux Tales is a conceptual project that delves into the male/female dynamic from a woman’s perspective, touching upon empowerment, lust, insecurity, loss and superficial desire.
“Heaux Tales is about my observation of today’s women standing in their power and owning who they are,” says Sullivan. “No longer is male patriarchy dictating what it means to be a ‘good girl.’ 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. We are multi-faceted and shouldn’t be defined by any one thing. We all have a journey to make and it’s our choice alone how we get there.”
The project will include recently released tracks “Lost One” and “Pick Up Your Feelings,” two songs that offer different takes from an ending relationship, both replete with Sullivan’s gravity-defying, chills-inducing voice.
