Jazmine Sullivan is one of the best R&B artists in the game and because of that, you would think she would have plenty of GRAMMY awards, but sadly you would be wrong…until now. After multiple nominations and multiple losses, Jazmine Sullivan finally earned not one, but two GRAMMY awards for her incredible album ‘Heaux Tales.’
It was a long, hard road, but after 15 losses, R&B powerhouse Jazmine Sullivan finally had her GRAMMY moment. Courtesy of her chart-topping and critically-acclaimed album ‘Heaux Tales,’ she took home her first and second trophies ever from the ceremony.
Winning for both Best R&B Album and Best R&B Performance (where she tied with multiple winners Silk Sonic,) Jazmine’s wins were the perfect cherry on top for an amazing musical era for her. When her album was initially released early last year, her fans were instantly convinced that it was GRAMMY material…and based on what happened at tonight’s ceremony, they were right.
During her acceptance speech for winning Best R&B Album, Jazmine gave a heartfelt shout-out to Black women:
“I think that I wrote this project to deal with my own shame and unforgiveness around some of the decisions that I made in my 20s that weren’t favorable. And, thank you. But what it ended up being was a safe space for Black women to tell their stories. For us to learn from each other, laugh with each other, and not be exploited at the same time. And that’s what I’m most grateful for. So shoutout to all Black women who are just living their lives, being beautiful. I love you all.
Thank you to everybody who helped me create ‘Heaux Tales,’ to the producers, the additional writers, to RCA and Sony Music, to my management, my mother and father who I love dearly and I can’t wait to see, my friends and family, everybody back in Philly, my fans, my man, everybody. Thank you so much, I appreciate this.”
We want to send our congratulations to Jazmine Sullivan and all her #BlackGirlMagic!
