Jazmine Sullivan makes her long awaited return with “Heaux Tales.”
Serving as her fourth studio album, and first in six year, Heaux Tales features guest appearances from Ari Lennox, H.E.R., and Anderson .Paak.
“Heaux Tales is about my observation of today’s women standing in their power and owning who they are,” explained Jazmine. “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.”
She continued, “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.”
“Heaux Tales” arrives nearly six years after Jazmine Sullivan’s previous album, Reality Show in 2015. Stream the 14-track album below.
