Last year, Jazmine Sullivan rocked the music world with the release of her fourth album, Heaux Tales. Not only did she discuss the complexities of Black womanhood when it comes to love, sexuality, commitment and abandonment, but she made it a sonic adventure worth every second of the listen. In 2022, Sullivan doubled down on her creative ambitions by releasing Heaux Tales, Mo’ Tales: The Deluxe. It consisted of 10 additional songs and interludes. In The Deluxe version, comedian Mona Love prides herself on her endless strides towards pleasure on “Mona’s Tale,” while Issa Rae describes her own intimate proclivities when it comes to getting over a low -value lover on “Issa’s Tale.” As with the original, Anderson .Paak beautifully played the role of besieged boyfriend on “Price Tags,” while newer songs like “Selfish” and “Hurt Me So Good” reminded listeners of just how powerful Sullivan can be when she basks in her truth. When describing the motivation of the Heaux Tales, she stated: “In order to move on and heal and enjoy the life that you’re still living, you have to forgive yourself. I was going through that process while making the project, and I want other women who I know are feeling the same way to know that it’s okay. Learn from your mistakes and move the eff on.”
