Jazmine_SullivanA couple of years Jazmine Sullivan retired from the music industry to only return to 2015 with the release of her album “Reality Show” but during that time alot of songs started leak and one of them is the Salaam Remi produced called “My Career”. It finds the Philly songstress singing over the drums from Al Green`s “I’m Glad You’re Mine” as she addresses a topic that most of us have dealt with, being so committed to your career that the person you`re in a relationship with starts accusing you of cheating which is not the matter, sometimes we need Stedman Graham (Oprah`s man) in our lives, a man who secure within himself to understand that your career comes first and supports and loves you even more being of your independence and knows where your heart is.
