It finally happens: Jazmine Sullivan is releasing a deluxe version of Tales of Heaux! Just one year after the release of her Grammy-nominated album, the R&B singer has announced that an extended version of her fourth studio project will arrive on February 11. January 24, she tweeted, “Mark your calendars”, featuring a graphic from the upcoming album, titled Heaux Tales, Mo’ Tales: The Deluxe.
According to rolling stone, the new album will contain additional songs and interludes that were not included in the original. Sullivan set her free Tales of Heaux project last year after a five-year hiatus to present the untold and underrepresented stories of black women, focusing on love, relationships and self-esteem.
In an interview with NPR, she explains why she chose to create her album around these themes. “I just wanted to tell the untold stories of women,” she says. “I feel like society makes it seem like we have to be perfect and present ourselves in a certain way to be considered a good woman. We’re so multidimensional and multidimensional and we have stories to tell, and it’s not all great stories but it’s what makes us who we are.”
Tales of Heaux proved to be one of the most talked about albums of 2021 and landed multiple nominations from the Recording Academy, NAACP Image Awards and Soul Train Awards. Now fans are eagerly waiting to see what else the singer has up her sleeve.
