Fresh off of her mesmerizing performance this past weekend at the ESSENCE Festival, Jazmine Sullivan has surprised her fans with a hilarious new visual for her latest single “Dumb." If you expected to see the “Bust Your Windows” singer doing the same old fed up two-step outside her man’s apartment, then think again. Ms. Sullivan has gone rogue and turned what could easily have been an average music video into what plays out almost as a mash up episode of Crank Yankers and Cheaters.
Similar to the infamous television shows, a cast of puppets and friends stake out in a van only to find out that their partners are cheating, which leads them to break into a few brawls, all while Jazmine and Meek Mill jam from the sidelines. The tables turn on Jazmine as the ending finds her love interest, New Girl actor Lamorne Morris, laying up in her bed with his own little puppet friend.
With her forthcoming third studio album being titled Reality Show, we're certainly grateful that she took a more comedic route with the idea rather than turning to the next episode of Love & Hip Hop to air out scripted dirty laundry. Jazmine hasn’t missed a beat yet with this comeback campaign, and we are glad about it. If you haven’t already, grab a copy of “Dumb” off of iTunes today as we wait for more details on this brand new album from one of Philly’s finest songbirds.
