The list, now in its nineteenth year, recognizes the impact, innovation, and achievement of the world’s most influential individuals, and there’s no denying that Jazmine took the world by storm with her lauded Heaux Tales project.  With vulnerable lyrics and candid spoken word tales, the project won a GRAMMY Award for Best R&B Album and the RIAA-certified Platinum single, “Pick Up Your Feelings,” won a GRAMMY for Best R&B Song.  

Earlier this year, Jazmine won three 2022 NAACP Image Awards – Outstanding Female Artist, Outstanding Album and Soul/R&B Song (“Pick Up Your Feelings”). Last year, Sullivan collected a BET Award for Album of the Year, plus two Soul Train Music Awards for Best Album/Mixtape and Best R&B/Soul Female Artist.

Heaux Tales landed at #1 on several best of the year lists, including NPRLos Angeles TimesEntertainment WeeklyPitchforkVulture; and within the top 10 on The New York Times (#4), FADER (#5), Complex (#5), Rolling Stone (#7), Billboard (#9), Time (#10), and more. After the year-long impact of Heaux Tales, Sullivan released Heaux Tales, Mo’ Tales: The Deluxe on February 11, 2022, which contained four new tracks and five new tales, including one from “Insecure” actress, writer, producer Issa Rae.

In the coming months, fans can see Jazmine at the following summer festivals:

Orlando Funk Fest (6/3), The Roots Picnic (6/4-6/5), Governors Ball (6/10), Essence Fest (7/2), Lollapalooza (7/28), and Austin City Limits Music Festival (10/7-9 & 14-16).

 THE 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE OF 2022

Jazmine Sullivan

Jazmine Sullivan for TIME 100 2022

BY AMBER RILEY

From her first single “Need U Bad,” Jazmine Sullivan demonstrated an innate ability to write songs that perfectly capture the stories of so many Black women. Sullivan has a lyrical vulnerability that makes you think she has been reading your journal. She is so deserving of her most recent Grammy win, along with acclaim and other accolades that have been an honor to witness.

But the most exciting part of her recent career journey has been that Sullivan has allowed us to share in her journey to self-love, removing herself from the shadows of fear as we can clearly see in her 2021 album Heaux Tales. 

In her speech during last year’s 2021 Soul Train Music Awards, she shared that she had made a vow to be present and not to hide away. It is this type of candor that makes Sullivan such an inspiration and icon to so many Black women including myself. It has truly been my pleasure to call her a friend over the years and I want to thank her for being an example of what happens when you believe in your gift and trust God’s calling for your life.
