Artist of the Week: Jazmine Sullivan


Jazmine Sullivan is the newcomer who expected little from the Grammy nominations but received 5 when she walked home.

Before 2008, Jazmine Sullivan was probably an unknown name in the music industry but her star shined this year, so bright that National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences took notice of her music. The 21-year-old earned as many as 5 Grammy nominations through her debut album, "Fearless".

Released in the U.S. on September 28, "Fearless" boasts singles like "Need U Bad", "In Love with Another Man" and "Bust Your Windows". All three of them are nominated for a Grammy each, Best R&B Vocal Performance, Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song respectively. On top of that she is also lauded for Best New Artist, contending the title with Duffy, Adele, Jonas Brothers and Lady Antebellum. The album itself is running for Best Contemporary R&B Album.

For one thing, Jazmine's journey to this was not a smooth one. She was the talented girl who hardly had a say in her project while signed to Jive Records. She did not release an album then, but it worked well for her when the frustration channeled her to creative songwriting sessions. J Records gave her the opportunity to record the songs that eventually projects her talent to the world.
