Jazmine Sullivan

Last night on the ride back home, I heard this siren's voice coming through my car radio. Her name is Jazmine Sullivan [pictured], she's appeared on Showtime at the Apollo and written songs for Christina Millian, and now she's about to release her debut album on J Records. The sheer power and character of her vocals hits you like the first time you heard Mary J. on What's the 411 or Lauryn Hill on Miseducation (people tend to compare her to the latter actually. I kind of see it.) Coupled with a sick dub beat provided by Missy Elliott, and this has really become my song for the moment:

Jazmine Sullivan - Need U Bad

Speaking of a musical genius named Missy, yesterday Jezebel wondered why women artists aren't labeled musical geniuses as often as their male counterparts. They suggested that it had something to do with the lack of female music writers covering the industry today, something I agree with, but they bring up some other valid points that can be found here.
