Just last night (June 27), the 2021 BET Awards gifted viewers with a number of memorable performances, including Migos and Cardi B, Silk Sonic, Megan Thee Stallion and more. Jazmine Sullivan joined the list when she gave her all and delivered a stellar performance to her newest single “Tragic.” The song borrows from Rep. Maxine Waters’ famed “Reclaiming my time” meme as Jazmine reflects on a relationship that wasn’t worth her time:
Reclaimin’ my time, reclaimin’ my time/ Why do you be looking for me to do all the work?/ I’m so tired of coming through, you never put me first/ But I guide you like I’m on a 4-wheeler/ Yeah I ride you like I’m at the car dealer/
Pacify you but I’m paying the cost, and now I’m done pretending that you getting me off/ When your dick is tragic, who was lying when they told you you was all that? And we had it, just another good laugh in our group chat/ Reclaim, reclaim, reclaim, reclaimin’ my time
As far as visuals from Jazmine go, fans are able to enjoy “Pick Up Your Feelings” from Heaux Tales. Back in January, Jazmine Sullivan unveiled the conceptual EP Heaux Tales, a 14-track body of work with additional appearances from Ari Lennox, H.E.R., and Anderson .Paak, along with a slew of spoken word pieces — or “tales” — courtesy of Antoinette Henry, Precious Daughtry, Rashida Northington, and more.
The project marked a big return for the Philadelphia songstress, landing at the number four spot on the Billboard 200 thanks to 47,000 album equivalent units sold during its first week of release. Before Heaux Tales was Jazmine Sullivan’s 2015 project Reality Show. That project included 12 songs and a sole feature from Meek Mill.
