After she abruptly left us in 2011 to go find herself, it was 2015 when Jazmine Sullivan decided she was good and ready to return and give us her third album, Reality Show. Her timing was impeccable, and so was the album, showcasing Jazmine's powerhouse gospel-infused vocals over contagious beats we have not yet forgotten. With the lyrics she penned herself, real and raw, and production from the likes of Key Wayne, Chuck Harmony, Da Internz and Salaam Remi, Jazmine delivered a relatable and compelling story in each track.
Jumping right into her mission to set the record straight, her album started with the hip hop track "Dumb" featuring Meek Mill, where she reminded us again she was not one to be played with. Jazmine later flaunted her beauty in tracks like "Mascara," and her love for R&B in "Let It Burn." Taking us on a musical blast from the past, she hit us with some '80s pop "Masterpiece (Mona Lisa)" and '60s flair in "Stupid Girl," making being smart sound just that much cooler.
Effortless and bold, Jazmine took on each track's storyline as if it were her own reality, and we were and still are here for it. In 2016, if Jazmine decides to keep things just as authentic like Reality Show, we'll be right here waiting with our popcorn and sitting in a front row seat. -- Mercy
