2020 has been a crazy year but when it came to the music everything was right, including the return of Philly’s own Jazmine Sullivan. After performing her current singles “Lost One” and “Pick Up Your Feelings,” at the 2020 Soul Train Music awards Jazmine took today to announce her new project titled Heaux Tales, due out on Jan. 8.

in the new clip which dropped today, Jazmine talked about the concept of her new album. “Heaux Tales is about my observation of today’s women standing in their power and owning who they are,” said 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.”
