Last month, Jazmine Sullivan opened up about her return to music and her plans to release a new album. Sullivan is following up with the release of a new single "Mascara" from her forthcoming album Reality Show.
After a four-year hiatus, the "Need You Bad" songstress is ready to belt out some new hits but she's switching things up this time around. On "Mascara," she steps away from the ballads about heartbreak and sings about trying to keep up with appearances.
"Most people think I'm shallow 'cause I'm always dressed like I'm goin' out to the club / But I gotta keep up 'cause there's new chicks poppin' up every day and they want the same thing," she sings.
During an interview with Rap-Up, the songstress explained her decision to tweak her lyrical content, noting a troubled relationship.
"I found it best to kinda not talk about [the relationship]. I was trying to get my mind off of that," she said. "The songs are really colorful, just about life in general and reality from my eyes."
Sullivan also said that her third album Reality Show, inspired by her love for reality shows is complete with production by Salaam Remi, Anthony Bell, and Key Wane.
"I'm really proud of it. I worked harder on this album than any album," she said. "I put a lot of pressure on myself 'cause I haven't been out in so long."
In addition to "Mascara," Reality Show will feature the Meek Mill-assisted "Dumb" and the soulful "Forever Don't Last."
