Jazmine Sullivan Says Tour Mates Are "Gentlemen"

Of the Oakland Press

Jazmine Sullivan says she’s being treated well by her tour mates, Ne-Yo and Musiq Soulchild.

“I’m really enjoying myself,” says the Philadelphia soul singer, whose debut album, “Fearless,” debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 and topped the R&B chart last fall.

“Musiq and Ne-Yo do a wonderful job. I know Musiq from back home in Philly. Ne-Yo I’m just meeting, but he’s very sweet, very much the gentleman. He actually sent me flowers for Valentine’s Day, and so did Musiq, so it’s very cool.”

So is the 21-year-old Sullivan’s career, which has been in the making since she was a teenager — including an aborted deal with another label. She’s scored a trio of hits so far — “Need U Bad,” “Bust Your Windows” and “Lions, Tigers & Bears” — and she’s also gearing up for a role in “Red Tails,” director Anthony Hemingway’s Tuskegee Airmen film that also features Ne-Yo, as well as a TV project she can’t talk about yet.

It’s plenty of good stuff, which helped take any sting out of not taking home any Grammy Awards despite five nominations.

“I’m not at all upset,” Sullivan says. “Everybody who was nominated pretty much was deserving. I have a long career ahead of me, so this is not my last Grammys, hopefully.”

Ne-Yo, Musiq Soulchild and Jazmine Sullivan perform at 8 p.m. Saturday (Feb. 28) at the Fox Theatre, 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit. Tickets are $38-$88. Call (313) 471-6611 or visit www.olympiaentertainment.com.
