R&B songstress Jazmine Sullivan took home the honors for Best R&B Album for Heaux Tales at the 2022 Grammy Awards.
Earlier in the night, Sullivan shared the award for Best R&B performance with Silk Sonic. Sullivan’s “Pick Up Your Feelings” and Silk Sonic’s “Leave The Door Open” came down to a split decision. But this is her first individual Grammy Awards win.
An honest and personal body of work that was created as the result of the life choices she made in her 20s, Sullivan found Heaux Tales to be much more than developments about herself.
“But what [it] ended up being, was a safe space for Black women to tell their stories, for us to learn from each other, laugh with each other, and not be exploited at the same time.”
Initially, before gracing the stage, Sullivan was surprised she had won.
Grateful for the win and reception of the album, she gives a shout out to all Black women before leaving the stage.
This project has done so much for us to not be ashamed of the things we've gone through when it comes to this album."
Sullivan, 34, said she has more plans for the 2021 album in the near future, with plans to link up with Issa Rae to bring the album into film form.
“I am working on turning Heaux Tales into a film with Issa Rae, but she has been so busy and I am finishing up on the tour. I really want to make this happen.”
