Just like that, Jazmine Sullivan is here for the summer releasing new single “Dumb” ft. MMG’s Meek Mill. The declarative ‘Dumb’ with both slow and mid tempo consistencies coupled with a chant-like exultant chorus speaks to a philandering partner, fully validating the title of the single as well as her proud dismay.
Celebrating a bold and electrically expressive delivery, we sang loudly to hits like “I Bust Your Windows”, “Lions, Tigers, & Bears” and “Need You Bad” on a then 21 year old Sullivan’s first album entitled Fear, released in 2008.
Satirically exuding no fear, again in 2010, releasing her second album Love Me Back, we cleared our throats to sing along to hit singles “Holding You Down (Going in Circles)” produced by Missy ‘Misdemeanor’ Elliott and “10 seconds” produced by Salaam Remi.
Having gone on an almost four year hiatus, this is Sullivan’s first release from her third & highly-anticipated upcoming studio album, Reality Show, as well as our first taste of what to expect from the soulful siren this year.
“Dumb” was produced by Key Wane, who has also done work for Big Sean, Chevy
Woods, Meek Mill and Drake. Take a listen and tell us what you think!
