JAZMINE SULLIVAN’S “NEED U BAD” CLAIMS NO. 1 SPOT ON CHARTS DEBUT ALBUM FEARLESS SET FOR SEPTEMBER 23 RELEASE GUEST PRODUCERS INCLUDE MISSY ELLIOTT, SALAAM REMI, STARGATE, JACK SPLASH AND MORE SULLIVAN JOINS MAXWELL ON 25-CITY TOUR
New York, NY – J Records’ singer/songwriter Jazmine Sullivan shows no fear of success as her debut single “Need U Bad” claims the No. 1 spot on this week’s Urban Mainstream chart, thus making her the first female in almost four years (the 8th this decade!) to accomplish this achievement. The Jonathan Mannion-directed video for “Need U Bad” is also the No. 1 clip on BET’s 106 & Park video countdown show and the No. 2 highest rated video on AOL Music.
Now with a chart-topping hit single and her J Records’ debut disc Fearless confirmed for a September 23rd release, all eyes are on Jazmine. The 21 year-old Philly native has been selected for the coveted new artist spotlights on VH1’s You Oughta Know
http://www.vh1.com/artists/you_oughta_know/, and MTV’s Discover and Download http://www.mtv.com/music/discover_download/.
On September 24, BET will air Jazmine Sullivan :: Fearless, a 30-minute performance special highlighting tracks from her debut album.
As an Executive Producer on Fearless, Sullivan (along with Missy Elliott, Salaam Remi and Peter Edge) has orchestrated a debut opus full of lush musical arrangements by Elliott, Remi, Stargate, Jack Splash, Fistacuffs and more – all complimented by her expressive yet witty songwriting skills and rich vocals. From the introductory reggae-inspired single “Need U Bad,” and the 60’s soulfulness on “One Night Stand,” to the prime-time drama of “Bust Your Windows” and the heart-wrenching “After The Hurricane,” Fearless will be a much needed respite for the multitude of releases set for the remainder of the year.
Beginning October 8 at Boston’s Opera House, Jazmine will bring her unique brand of bold and beautiful music with a rebellious spirit, live and direct as the opening act on the highly-anticipated 25-city Maxwell tour.
