I remember being sincerely shocked back in 2011 when Jazmine Sullivan announced that she was going to be leaving the music industry when she had just found her footing. (I mean, she even had endorsement deals. Remember the cotton commercial?) But she’d had enough.

She tweeted: “i’m making an official announcement that i am taking a break from music. i’m trying to figure out who i am… w/out a mike, paper or pen. i promised myself that when it wasn’t fun anymore i wouldn’t do it. and here i am. i’m not saying i wont ever sing again in my life becuz i dont believe that. but in this moment… rt now… i got some things to figure out.”

But after a recent performance in London, she announced that she’s back after a three and a half year break. The 26 year old, Grammy nominated artist played a sold out show at the KOKO in London.

During the performance, Sullivan announced that she’s working on a third album and will debut the single soon.

You can watch her perform, my favorite song of her’s “In Love With Another Man” in the video below.

Are you happy Jazmine has come back to the music industry? Will you be checking out her new music?

As its been said a million times before and remains true, music is a universal language. Before you know it, a song can take you on an emotional roller coaster, feeling things you didn’t know you felt.  The stories told in songs can have you agreeing…and throwing a side eye.  Some of our favorite songs have some of the most trifling situations: cheating, fighting over men, falling in love with someone else, babies, etc.  Check out the list and don’t forget to tell us your fave song that has a trifling meaning!

“Keep Goin’ In Circles, Circles, Round And Round”: MN Jam Of The Day – “Holding You Down” By Jazmine Sullivan

If you’re sleeping on Jazmine Sullivan, you really should wake up, folks. This girl has jams for days, and this one in particular, with it’s nod to throwback Mary J. Blige and hip-hop from the late ’80s and early ’90s (just check the samples) is just the right cup of tea to wake you up this morning. And if her voice doesn’t put you in a good mood, well, I don’t know what to tell you…you’re just destined to be a Debbie Downer today. Enjoy this morning jam, and be sure to save it to your Spotify playlists, iTunes and put it on your music player, because you shall not be sowwy (spelled it like that on purpose for the grammar Nazis).

New music from Monica is always a good thing—throw in Missy Elliott and Jazmine Sullivan behind the scenes and you’ve got greatness. Monica has just released the video for her new single “Until It’s Gone” off of her album, “New Life,” scheduled for release November 29.  Warning: The video,  featuring Brian J. White and Malinda Williams,  is a bit of a tear jerker — so be prepared.

What do you think? Are you feeling Monica’s new single?

10 Reasons Why We’re Losing the “Jazmine Sullivans”

January 6th, 2011 - By Chaya Wilkins

It is no secret that 23-year old soul songstress Jazmine Sullivan has a short fuse. On her latest track, “10 Seconds,” the Grammy-nominated singer gave her cheating man a 10-second warning before she started “throwing and breaking s**t”—but who would have guessed that the same deadline applied to the budding singer’s mainstream career. After announcing her hiatus from music earlier this week—only three years in—fans were left wondering why Sullivan had opted for only 15 minutes of fame. After plenty of head scratching we began to think that maybe Sullivan’s short fuse with the music industry was justified because of its unwillingness to embrace Neo-Soul artists such as her.

Here are the top 10 reasons why we are losing our “Jazmine Sullivans”:

Jazmine Sullivan Pardons Hostility in New Album

Musician Jazmine Sullivan is back with a forthcoming album, “Love Me Back,” and airing out some dirty laundry in her music.

She is no longer lashing out to fill a void or fueling a bitter relationship. Her decision to abandon the resentment in search of emotional stability led to Sullivan’s new project.

“I was a little angry on the first album, busting windows and things,” the soul singer said. “Im not quite as angry on this one. You see a different side of relationships, the more loving side,” Sullivan said.

The 23-year-old singer who emerged with the valiant debut album, “Fearless,” garnered critical praise for the hit-singles, “Bust your windows” and “Lions, Tigers and Bears” back in 2008.

Now that the rewards have paid off, the singer has geared up for new singles, “Holding You Down (Goin in Circles) and “10 Seconds” which speak volumes in a more subdued fashion.

“The first album I was just busting windows out, but this time I’mma give you 10 seconds to get away,” Sullivan laughed.

She is planning an upcoming tour with R&B superstars Mary J. Blige and El Debarge to kick off October 2 in Atlanta.

“Love Me Back” will be released in October.
