BEST FEMALE R&B VOCAL PERFORMANCE FOR “HOLDING YOU DOWN”
JAZMINE TO PERFORM “10 SECONDS” ON THE WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW ON 12/10
[New York, NY – December 8, 2010] On the heels of receiving a Grammy nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for her single “Holding You Down (Goin’ In Circles), Jazmine Sullivan and her sophomore disc Love Me Back, debuts at #5 on Billboard’s R&B Albums and #17 on Billboard’s Top 200 charts.
The recent recipient of this year’s Billboard Rising Star Award, the now eight-time Grammy nominee has amassed critical praise for her sophomore disc, including the Associated Press’ declaration that Love Me Back “is something amazing.” Entertainment Weekly cites Jazmine as “the best kind of R&B paradox; the vulnerable diva,” while the Los Angeles Times extols that “Sullivan pours herself into the songs yet keeps her ground, no matter the style or tone.”
Jazmine will perform her current single “10 Seconds” on the Wendy Williams Show on December 10th and will celebrate the holidays with a performance on BET’s A Very BET Christmas special on December 12th. Jazmine’s performance of “Holding You Down” and “10 Seconds” on the 2010 Soul Train Awards will re-air on BET December 11th and Centric on December 19th.
Jazmine and her 2008 debut album Fearless, which featured the chart-topping hit singles “Need U Bad” and “Bust Your Windows,” received an amazing seven Grammy nominations, including Best New Artist.
