Prematurely announcing your retirement is almost a rite of passage for artists. Lupe Fiasco, Game, and Kid Cudi have all announced their retirement from music at one point, probably after a lousy day or something. On Sunday, Jazmine Sullivan wrote on Twitter, “i’m making an official announcement that i am taking a break from music. i’m trying to figure out who i am… w/out a mike, paper or pen. i promised myself when it wasn’t fun anymore i wouldn’t do it. and here i am..” But then she quickly deleted the tweets.
The good news is Salaam Remi leaked this unreleased/new song to cheer her up. Jazmine just needed to be reminded that she’s not a robot and she has one of the best producers around in her corner.
