Summary: Sometimes you just can’t help it.
About Artist: Jazmine Sullivan has been one of my favs since she rocketed to fame in 2008 with Bust Your Windows. Jazmine Sullivan is so talented and has a great discography. This song also happens to be produced by another favorite of mine, KeY Wane.
About Song: This song is off her Jazmine’s recent EP “Heaux Tales” (2021). It is her first release in almost six years and even if you don’t love this track, the album is definitely worth checking out. Heaux Tales has a tone of features from people like Ari Lennox, H.E.R., Anderson .Paak and more. The EP is strong on message and discusses female sexuality, body shaming and other issues that have kept Jasmine Sullivan from releasing more music in the past several years.
Favorite Part: Love the beat and love the honest message.
