You Need To Get With Jazmine Sullivan

That's all I have to say, really. You need to get with Jazmine Sullivan. And that Top 40 music needs to follow her direction: i.e. lyrics can be smart without being preachy; modern and raw without being hedonistic. And that her record has the songs, but it also has the production, so everybody wins. And that she's got weapons-grade pipes, but she keeps it in check with real-soul phrasing and leaves the fake out. And that Jazmine Sullivan is the middle path. And that you need to get with her.

Jazmine Sullivan "Live a Lie"

Jazmine Sullivan "Fear"

"Need You Bad" sounds like a Lauryn Hill song
