Jazmine Sullivan Wins Two Grammys – Fans React
Jazmine picked up her very first Grammy early in the show as “Pick Up Your Feelings” won for Best R&B Performance – it tied with Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open.”
And then cheers rang out again as Jazmine’s name was announced again, this time for Best R&B Album. Her 2021 project Heaux Tales beat out releases from fellow nominees H.E.R., Snoh Aalegra, Jon Baptiste, and Leon Bridges.
Heux Tales has been on repeat with my friends and I…and my entire Twitter timeline, so this win felt like a win for all of us! Issa Rae loved it so much, Jazmine ended up creating a deluxe edition featuring the Insecure star.
“[Heaux Tales ended up being] a safe space for Black women to tell their stories,” began Jazmine in her acceptance speech. “For us to learn from each other, laugh with each other, and not be exploited.”
“Shout out to all Black women who are just living their lives and being beautiful.”
Before tonight, Jazmine had 12 Grammy nominations under her belt. Later on in the night, Jazmine admitted that she almost gave up on the idea of winning a Grammy.
“Not a lot of things matter with all that I’ve been through,” Jazmine told Variety last month about what a Grammy win would mean to her. “I feel as if I have always gotten acclaim from people that I care about and respect.”
Well, fans – myself included – could not be happier for the singer/songwriter. Here’s how they celebrated Jazmine’s win on Twitter:
Here’s to many more wins!
