R&B fans everywhere are still celebrating the release of Jazmine’s new EP, Heaux Tales, the first big release of 2021.

Check out Jazmine’s latest live performance down below as she performs “Girl Like Me” on The Tonight Show:
In a statement, the R&B powerhouse shared that this new album is all about “women standing in their power and owning who they are.”
“No longer is male patriarchy dictating what it means to be a “good girl,” she continued. “The truth is, women of all ages have been called a “heaux” at some point in life, whether deserved or not, by some man trying to put us in our place; a place designed to keep us under control, out of the way and usually beneath them. Women are over feeling ashamed about the decision we have made, or chose to make, in regards to our bodies. We are multi-faceted and shouldn’t be defined by any one thing. We all have a journey to make and it’s our choice alone how we get there.”
Aside from the massive success of her new album, Jazmine Sulivan is celebrating an even bigger milestone in. her life right now: her mother’s final day of chemotherapy! She tweeted about the big news over the weekend, letting anyone else going through breast cancer know she’s praying for them.
