The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit - stripped-down sets, an intimate setting - just a different space.
Bobby Carter | January 8, 2021
I don't recall any other artist at the Tiny Desk harmonizing their own introduction, but Philadelphia's own Jazmine Sullivan didn't waste a second, greeting us all by flexing those once-in-a-generation chops from the jump. The singer-songwriter, draped in a trench coat while her band sports all black, are nestled in the corner of a dimly lit space resembling a cabaret.
We don't see or hear much from Jazmine Sullivan until she has something to get off her chest. She drops a body of work every five years or so, shakes up the world of R&B with each offering, then quietly goes back to minding her own business. Her latest project, Heaux Tales, is a bold and timely conversation piece addressing truths regarding relationships, sex, social norms, self-worth and a myriad of other topics that women graple with. Each song is masterfully connected to another through unique yet familiar testimonies by women from all walks of life.
She starts her Tiny Desk (home) concert with three extended and reworked selections from Heaux Tales, squeezes in thee fan favorite from 2015's Reality Show, then invites Tiny Desk alum H.E.R. to the stage to close with "Girl Like Me." Ms. Sullivan, her background vocalists and H.E.R. ate this performance up and left not a crumb on the floor.

    put aside her vocal talent. the artistry of these lyrics is unreal. at once, they comment AND critique the lived experiences, hopes, and dreams of so many people today. grounded from a perspective of a young black woman in america today, they question how to make a life in this horrible and racist economy, and she does so with remarkable creativity and playful abundance. there were glimpses of this in her first album, the second one amped it up, and this third one really is — a masterpiece. love you Jazmine, and thank you

    Jazmine and H.e.r. together was like eavesdropping on them on the couch drinking and having a private conversation between girlfriends. You can't take nothing from Jazmine she's really come full circle like one of the greats getting greater .. or more great. And then there was h.e.r. and the way that she just sat there so casually and chill and played thst acoustic guitar and sang that song
