Jazmine Sullivan is back with new music as if she never left. The singer recently released her latest EP Heaux Tales, after being on a hiatus for many years.
During a recent interview with Joe Budden, Sullivan revealed that the reason for the long break in music was due to an abusive relationship.
“So I had a horrible relationship that resulted in domestic abuse at the time,” she said. After the release of her 2015 album, ‘Reality Show’, the singer explained that she already had plans to take a short break from music.
“I came back with ‘Reality Show’ after that I had started touring Reality Show. And I had planned on just kinda taking a short break and time kinda got away from me.”
She continued, “Some things happened in it that I never thought that I would experience. I let some things happen that I never thought I would, and I kinda became a different person. And sometimes you think you’ve healed and you haven’t. And like you’re going about your life and situations come up and you start kinda acting out things from the past that you didn’t even know were still there.”
Sullivan also said that her life experiences during that time contributed to Heaux Tales. Watch the entire clip below.
