After a three-and-a-half-year hiatus, our favorite songstress who isn’t scared of lions, tigers, bears or to bust the windows out your car is back!
Jazmine Sullivan took to the stage at the KOKO Theater in London this weekend, where she performed tracks from her first two albums, 2008’s Fearless and 2010’s Love Me Back, and her own rendition of “Get Lucky” by Daft Puck and Pharrell Williams. Along with showing off those powerhouse vocals that we’ve so desperately missed, the 26-year-old soul star announced that her third studio project will drop later this year.
“I’m glad to be back guys,” she said as the crowd cheered. “It’s been awhile.”
The “I Need You Bad” singer announced her departure from music industry back in January 2011. “I’m making an official announcement that I am taking a break from music. I’m trying to figure out who i am… w/out a mike, paper or pen,” she tweeted. “I promised myself that when it wasn’t fun anymore I wouldn’t do it. And here I am. I’m not saying I won’t ever sing again in my life becuz I don’t believe that. But in this moment… rt now… I got some things to figure out.”
In during the concert, Jazmin revealed that insecurities and an abusive relationship were also part of the reason she took a break from the spotlight. However, she ensured fans that’s she fully confident and ready to finish what she started.
If you ask us, she sounds better than ever! Check out footage from her show below.
