Jazmine Sullivan: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert


The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit - stripped-down sets, an intimate setting - just a different space.
Bobby Carter | January 8, 2021
I don't recall any other artist at the Tiny Desk harmonizing their own introduction, but Philadelphia's own Jazmine Sullivan didn't waste a second, greeting us all by flexing those once-in-a-generation chops from the jump. The singer-songwriter, draped in a trench coat while her band sports all black, are nestled in the corner of a dimly lit space resembling a cabaret.
We don't see or hear much from Jazmine Sullivan until she has something to get off her chest. She drops a body of work every five years or so, shakes up the world of R&B with each offering, then quietly goes back to minding her own business. Her latest project, Heaux Tales, is a bold and timely conversation piece addressing truths regarding relationships, sex, social norms, self-worth and a myriad of other topics that women graple with. Each song is masterfully connected to another through unique yet familiar testimonies by women from all walks of life.
She starts her Tiny Desk (home) concert with three extended and reworked selections from Heaux Tales, squeezes in thee fan favorite from 2015's Reality Show, then invites Tiny Desk alum H.E.R. to the stage to close with "Girl Like Me." Ms. Sullivan, her background vocalists and H.E.R. ate this performance up and left not a crumb on the floor.

    I'm a BIG Jazmine Sullivan fan but i'm not really feeling the profanity, when she uses the word "b!tch" it just throws the whole song off. I noticed in her song "feelings" she uses the B word also. I'm not sure if she has changed her style to try to reach a younger audience but the profanity is unnecessary and makes her music sound CHEAP.

    Have you not listened to her “Reality Show” album? There’s lots of cussing there... Also, she said at one point years ago that music wasn’t fun for her anymore. In a recent interview she said she was exploring a different concept with this EP and it’s a one and done.
