Today, Jazmine Sullivan is back with her first album in over six years, Heaux Tales, a sumptuous 32-minute treatise on sexual politics and self-care, with appearances from Ari Lennox, H.E.R. and Anderson Paak. And no major album rollout in the age of COVID would be complete without a Tiny Desk Home Concert, NPR's newest video endeavor. Of course, these performances are neither tiny nor at a desk (and more often than not are filmed in studios rather than "at home"), but hey, what are you gonna do about it?
And why even surface such discrepancies when the quality is as pristine as in Jazmine Sullivan's performance. Watch her take on five tracks from the new album — "Bodies (Intro)," "The Other Side," "Lost One," "Let It Burn," and "Girl Like Me" — above.
