The New Lauryn?

Photobucket

What a statement! 21 year old Jasmine Sullivan's album Fearless dropped this year and she is now being hailed as the new Lauryn Hill. Her album has some serious cuts and her vocals are immense. I personally think it's a great album but can anyone really be compared to Lauryn Hill? Or am I being a biased Lauryn fan?

please go and cop this album! It's so dope. But lyrically/vocally no one compares

soundin quite a bit like lauren for real

She's BAAAAD.

Albums in my '08 Top 10!

If she's stays sane and improves on the debut then she'd have topped Lauren already for me.

Missy Jamaican accent HAHAAAAAAAA.

Shenanigan said...

the JA accent is peppa form salt and peppa..but I agree with you twin! I am actually losing my bloody voice trying to mimic her voice...my neighbours must hate this album

If there is any justice in the world, girlfriend should be the biggest thing in modern day American music.

I've been hammering at least 6 different cuts from this album over the last month or so. RnB album of the 2008 for me (possibly tied with Dwele).

But as for the Lauryn comparisons...yeah there are some similarities. But c'mon....Miseducation is groundbreaking and as big as 'fearless' is, it will never touch miseducation.

That being said, at only 21 Jazmine's got a few years in her still...

DJ B said...

oh and who agree's, 'Lions tigers and bears' is the sickest tune on this album, alie?

Shenanigan said...

can i say stush that is the one that has made my voice horse! Much harder than it seems to sing..mmm

Shenanigan said...

oh my gosh dj b that IS the sickest! I have to ban myself from playing it and neglecting the other songs.


Please Note: I will prob comment under everyone's comment on this one

oh and bust your windows is close too

mobos should get up and coming artists like jazmine and llow the flo rida ish passed off as music.

Baby girl's got pipes and promise. She's only 21, so I hope that she ups her game lyrically, and defines HER OWN style a little more. But- wow- amazing voice, indeed very Lauryn-esque

Jasmine is indeed a breath of fresh air. The fearless album is on a serious level. From "lions, tigers and bears" to "buss the windows". I have that album on repeat. "Call me guilty" is in a league of its own. She is a talented storyteller. In terms of being "the new Lauryn", I think there is truly more to come of Jasmine and I think she's an incredible artist in her own right. One of the best albums of 08 for sure!
