Jazmine Sullivan Returns to the Stage After Hiatus

Jazmine Sullivan

Jazmine Sullivan is back. Following a three-and-a-half-year hiatus, the Grammy-nominated songstress made a roaring return to the stage in London over the weekend.

The 26-year-old played a sold-out show at KOKO London, performing her hits including “Lions, Tigers & Bears,” “Bust Your Windows,” and “Need U Bad,” plus a cover of Daft Punk and Pharrell’s “Get Lucky.”

“I’m glad to be back guys,” she told the crowd as they cheered.

In January 2011, the Philly native announced that she was taking a break from music so she could focus on herself.

“i’m making an official announcement that i am taking a break from music. i’m trying to figure out who i am… w/out a mike, paper or pen,” tweeted Jazmine. “i promised myself that when it wasn’t fun anymore i wouldn’t do it. and here i am. i’m not saying i wont ever sing again in my life becuz i dont believe that. but in this moment… rt now… i got some things to figure out.”

During Saturday’s gig, she reportedly also announced that she is working on her third album and will debut a new single soon.

Prior to her departure from music, Jazmine released two albums including 2010′s Love Me Back and her 2008 debut Fearless, which earned seven Grammy nominations.

    @Kyle, yeah as @Ay said, think it was called Mona Lisa (Masterpiece), it is such a good song can’t wait for the third album. No word on when it will be out though, I’m anticipating it so much; seems as though she has had a lot to write about.

    Thank god shes back! Shes one of the few today that sing from her soul. All these chicks better run for cover when her album comes out especially ms. Melanie Fiona. Gorgeous young lady, but in my opinion a bootleg J. Sully. Cant wait to hear the new album, and all the depth it will bring.
