Heaux Tales

Jazmine Sullivan album cover

Heaux Tales is more than an album: It’s a storytelling masterclass, a therapy session and a no-holds-barred thesis on women’s experiences with sex and love all in one. Sullivan’s voice soars across soulful refrains and smart, quick-talking bars that feel like a late-night dish session with your coolest friend, and her tracks are connected by intimate spoken-word interludes that elevate the songs around them into gospel.
