Jazmine Sullivan Takes It Back With ‘Holding You Down’

While the single dropped some time ago, the video for Jazmine Sullivan's "Holding You Down (Goin' In Circles)" refreshes the song. For some reason seeing Jazzy as she sulks and reminisces (and generally looks beautiful) is like seeing her for the first time. She was never really off the radar but she's certainly in hiding while recording the follow up to Fearless that will be released this Fall. Overall it's a nice, lusciously shot video. She's a little monotone in her performance but the energy really picks up in the second half when everything goes back to 1989. Putting aside the sparkling vodka product placement, there are plenty of high top fades and cameos (MissyPepa, Pete Rock, Kwame and Doug E. Fresh) to entertain. Definitely looking forward to seeing and hearing more from Jazzy in the months to come.

  5. really love this song! like the color of the vid too.
    I'm looking forward to hearing more from her as well. 🙂

  6. I really wish Jazmine could do something without being in the shadow of Missy Elliott. I really don't think it bolsters her in anyway. I love the song/video, regardless of the blatant NUVO placement and House Party re-enactment toward the end.
