Watch: Niia & Jazmine Sullivan Perform “Sideline” Live


Jazzy soulstress Niia connects with Jazmine Sullivan once again for a beautiful in-studio performance of their standout duet “Sideline” off the singer’s debut album I.

Accompanied by a string and wind section and illuminated with standing bars of beaming light, the virtuoso vocalists trade lines in perfect balance and harmony, while belting out their own verses.

Niia previously explained that the song is about “two very different women dealing with the same problem.” She said Jazmine was the only choice for the duet because she’s just so incredible. “If I was ever going to lose to another woman, I’d want it to be a strong, incredibly talented, beautiful woman,” Niia said. “Jazmine Sullivan is that woman.”

Sullivan complimented Niia’s “hauntingly beautiful tone,” and added that once she heard the lyrics, she was sold on the song. “Anywhere there’s authenticity and drama I’m all in,” Jazmine said.

Niia and Jazmine previously connected in the stunning black-and-white music video for “Sideline.”
