Hot on heels with her latest releases, Jazmine Sullivan makes her album ‘Heaux Tales‘ goes to the top of the charts
The new project from Heaux Tales from Jazmine has 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.
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 7. The pregame show will air nationally on CBS and will be broadcast live worldwide. Sullivan will join a prestigious line up of past Super Bowl National Anthem performers, including: Demi Lovato, Gladys Knight, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Luke Bryan, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Jennifer Hudson, Billy Joel, P!NK, Jordin Sparks, Idina Menzel, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, and Neil Diamond.
Sullivan’s much buzzed-about performances on NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert, Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, 2020 Soul Train Music Awards, in addition to acoustic performance videos for “Lost One” and “Pick Up Your Feelings,” are all evidence of Sullivan’s vocal versatility, making each “live” rendition uniquely their own and leaving viewers awestruck.
