With her brand new single, “Pick Up Your Feelings,” Jazmine Sullivan has gifted us with the break-up anthem we didn’t know we needed. The new song is the follow-up to her critically praised single “Lost One.” Both songs are set to feature on her upcoming, untitled EP. This will be her first project since 2015’s Reality Show which spawned the R&B hit “Let it Burn.”
Now let’s talk about this new song Jazmine Marie Sullivan! How dare you sang your face off like this?! This song should come with a warning label because it is fire from start to finish. From the production to the writing to the vocals, Jazmine is at her best. At this point, Jazmine Sullivan is the closest thing to Aretha Franklin level greatness that we have. No other artist oozes soul so effortlessly while being able to articulate a viewpoint that feels deeply personal yet surprisingly relatable. Laced with many caption-worthy punchlines, Jazmine is letting her ex know that she is no longer concerned with him or his emotions. That level of unbothered may just have Omarion beat. No one is better than Jazmine in her bag, so we can’t wait to hear all she has in store.
