New Music: Jazmine Sullivan – ‘Forever Don’t Last’

Forever Don't Last

Earlier this year, Jazmine Sullivan returned to the scene with her Meek Mill-assisted single “Dumb.” The Philly songstress continues her comeback with her second single “Forever Don’t Last.” On the soulful acoustic jam, she channels her emotions as she reflects on the demise of her relationship.

“And I tried to believe that we could make it / But trying don’t work / So I just have to face that forever doesn’t last too long these days,” she sings.

Her first album in four years, Reality Show, is due later this year. “I really think with this album there is a more current sound,” Jazmine told ABC News Radio. “I’ve always done a lot of different things, but with this particular album I feel like it’s going to attract a lot of younger kids who may not have been into my stuff before.”

Hear her pour her heart out on the emotional ballad.

Video: Jazmine Sullivan f/ Meek Mill – ‘Dumb’

Jazmine Sullivan

Jazmine Sullivan is back and busting cheaters in the Meek Mill-assisted video for “Dumb,” the first single off her upcoming third album Reality Show.

In the comical clip, a puppet version of the Philly songstress hosts “Dumb,” her own take on the hidden camera reality show “Cheaters,” which catches men committing adultery.

Jazmine helps her fellow women catch their lovers in scandalous situations, whether it’s a politician with a prostitute or a father-to-be in a hot tub. But it turns out that her man, played by “The New Girl” star Lamorne Morris, is also cheating on her…with a Muppet.

Her first album in three-and-a-half years is due later this year. “I really think with this album there is a more current sound,” Jazmine told ABC News Radio. “I’ve always done a lot of different things, but with this particular album I feel like it’s going to attract a lot of younger kids who may not have been into my stuff before.”

Dumb

Jazmine Sullivan is back. After a three-and-a-half-year absence from the music industry, the Philly songstress makes a triumphant return with her new single “Dumb” featuring Meek Mill. Jazmine channels her emotions and shows off her powerful pipes, singing about a man who thinks he can outsmart her.

“I know you know you ain’t right / Please stop, I know where you was last night / And if you’re gonna lie, then at least be good,” she sings over the marching beat, produced by Key Wane and Salaam Remi.

The song will appear on the 27-year-old’s upcoming third album Reality Show, due later this year.

In late March, she staged a comeback show in London. She will also perform at the ESSENCE Music Festival in New Orleans on July 3.

Get with the program by listening below.
