Jazmine Sullivan          

R&B Singer-Songwriter Known for "Bust Your Windows"

Jazmine Sullivan is a Grammy Award-winning R&B singer-songwriter from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Sonically, Sullivan's voice alternates between "modern productions" and a "1980s-influenced sound" which music critics say gives her an "old-school hip-hop sound." Sullivan cites singers Brandy, Changing Faces, Kim Burrell, Lauryn Hill, and Dorinda Clark-Cole as her main influences and inspirations.

Her debut album, Fearless, was released in 2008 to commercial and critical success. It is certified gold in the US and is the longest-running #1 album by a female R&B artist in the history of the U.S. Album Charts. A cover version of her second single "Bust Your Windows" that was made on Glee in 2009 boosted her name recognition.

Sullivan released her second studio album, Love Me Back, in 2010. The album was critically and commercially well-received.

After taking a three-year break, Sullivan released her third studio album, Reality Show, on January 13, 2015. It became Sullivan's best-selling album and peaked at #1 at the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. Reality Show earned her three Grammy Awards, including Best R&B Album, and an NAACP Image Award, which was in the category Outstanding Song.

In 2010, Sullivan was named a Rising Star by Billboard. At the 2009 and 2016 NAACP Image Awards, Sullivan was nominated for Outstanding New Artist and Outstanding Female Artist. In 2018, her single "Bust Your Windows" was listed at #140 on National Public Radio (NPR)'s The 200 Greatest Songs By 21st Century Women.

On August 27, 2020, Sullivan announced the release of a new song titled "Lost One", marking her return to music. Within hours of the announcement, the phrase "New Jazmine" trended on Twitter across the United States. The song was released the next day along with the confirmation of her extended play (EP), Heaux Tales. The EP was released on January 8, 2021, and reached number one on the R&B Albums chart, also earning Sullivan her career best peak on the Billboard 200. One month later, Sullivan performed the National Anthem at Super Bowl LV with country star Eric Church.
