Mary J. Blige Kicks Off Tour with Jazmine Sullivan, Miguel

Mary J. Blige

Mary J. Blige stepped on stage in a form-fitting shiny bodysuit and boots on the first date of her “Music Saved My Life” tour at Chastain Park Amphitheater in Atlanta on Saturday night (Oct. 2). Before taking the stage with hits like “No Drama” and “I’m Goin’ Down,” Miguel and Jazmine Sullivan warmed up the crowd with their soulful music. MJB and Jazmine recently teamed up for the Swizz Beatz-produced remix of “Holding You Down (Goin’ in Circles)” from Jazmine’s sophomore album Love Me Back, now due November 30.

The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul has been in and out of the lab cooking up her 10th studio album. “Yes, we’re working on one,” she tells the New York Daily News, revealing that some of the guests may include Jay-Z, Swizz Beatz, Johnta Austin, and Ryan Leslie. “I don’t know what we’re calling it. I’m not rushing to come out with it. When it is done, it is done.”

Taking it back to the ’80s on the old school, hip-hop-inspired “Holding You Down (Goin’ in Circles),” Jazmine Sullivan goes further back in time on the swinging ’50s soul number “10 Seconds.” The second single off her sophomore album Love Me Back (Nov. 2), the Salaam Remi production sees the Philly soulstress trying to keep her cool after her man does her wrong.

Album Cover: Jazmine Sullivan – ‘Love Me Back’

Love Me Back

She’s been known to bust the windows out the car, but Jazmine Sullivan puts down the crowbar on the cover of her sophomore album Love Me Back. The fragile songstress, dressed in all black, leans against an old-school Chevy Impala in the artwork from the November 2nd release, which contains the Missy Elliott-produced single “Holding You Down (Goin’ in Circles).”

“I was a little angry on the first album, busting windows and things,” said the 23-year-old Sullivan. “I’m not quite as angry on this one. You see a different side of relationships, the more loving side.”

Drake, Lloyd Banks, & Jazmine Sullivan Get Hyphy in the Bay

Drake

Though he was noticeably absent from the second night of Jay-Z and Eminem’s recent Detroit double-bill, Drake had good reason. The Toronto native headed over to Oakland, Calif., to headline KMEL’s Summer Jam 2010 at Oracle Arena on Saturday (Sept. 4), where he shared the stage with fellow performers Jazmine Sullivan, E-40, Lloyd Banks, Miguel, and more.

Rocking a varsity jacket, cargo pants, and shades, Drizzy showed Cali love by performing hits from his discography, removing his jacket near the end of his set and shouting “Free Weezy!”

Bay Area legend E-40 repped for his Sick Wid It Records imprint, donning a glittery chain that hung over his black tee, while a gorgeous Jazmine Sullivan sang her heart out during her set, looking sharp in a cropped teal jacket, shiny shirt, and ragged jeans.

Lloyd Banks added some NYC flavor to the lineup, taking the stage after newcomers Miguel, Dorrough, Bobby Brackins, YG, and R.O.D. Project warmed up the crowd. Summer may be nearing its end, but check the photos below to see how this group of performers heated things up.

Mary J. Blige and Jazmine Sullivan

Jazmine Sullivan gets help from some heavy hitters on the remix to “Holding You Down (Goin’ in Circles),” the lead single off her sophomore album Love Me Back. With the original beat still intact (and the addition of some Swizz Beatz sirens), the Philly soulstress gets some help from Mary J. Blige, who revives her verse from “Be Happy” before folding in some new lyrics. Guess Jazmine isn’t the only one dealing with man problems, huh? Be on the lookout for her new album, dropping this fall.
