Jazmine Sullivan was recently nominated for 5 Grammy awards, including Best New Artist. Like Craig David, Lily Allen and Leona Lewis, she too felt the pain that goes with leaving an award ceremony empty-handed. But, she's not sulking into her Coco Pops, no, she's getting ready to attack the UK with her blend of mid-paced R&B and a voice you could wrap yourself in.
Her debut UK release will be 'Dream Big', which samples Daft Punk's 'Veridis Quo' and is produced by Missy Elliott*:
Five things you need to know:
1. Her debut album is called Fearless and is only £6.99 in HMV.
2. She seems a little angry.
3. Her morals when it comes to sex are a little confused. One minute she's scared of sex, the next she's bragging about one night stands.
4. Utters this piece of lyrical genius: "You broke my heart / So I broke your car"
5. Half the album is produced by Salaam Remi, who did this and this, as well as some stuff for Ms. Dynamite (the good stuff), Fugees and Mutya Buena.
* 'Fans' of Musick may be wondering what's happened to the 'hilarious' running 'joke' about how Missy is one of our friends and we've been holiday with each other and eaten pasta together. It's literally not that funny. Well, Missy and I had a falling out and we don't talk anymore. She wanted to spend more time with her glamorous singer friends and I was happy eating cookies and watching Shipwrecked. It's a shame.
