Jazmine Sullivan – Forever Don’t Last

With a distinctive vocal style that’s rich and full of conviction, J Records’ latest signing, Jazmine Sullivan is set to heat up the airwaves this summer with her smash new single “Need U Bad” featuring Missy Elliott. The infectious reggae-tinged single, written by Jazmine and produced by Missy and Lamb, will impact urban mainstream radio stations on 5/26. “Need U Bad” will be available digitally on May 20. Demure but dangerous, Jazmine’s frank, take-no-prisoners approach to songwriting, coupled with her passionate delivery, will quickly establish her as the one to watch this year and years to come. While her self-penned lyrics on “Bust Your Windows,” “One Night Stand,” “Guilty” and “In Love With Another Man,” may raise a few eyebrows, music production by Missy, Saalam Remi, Jack Splash, Tricky, Wyclef, Stargate and more, will keep listeners captivated throughout her forthcoming debut disc. Singing since the age of five, the Philly native made her first national televised appearance on Showtime at the Apollo at the age of 11. As Jazmine continued to hone and define her vocal dexterity, she quickly gained a legion of fans during her jaw-dropping live sets at her hometown’s popular Black Lily showcases, where artists such as Jill Scott, Musiq, and Floetry performed before they became national recording artists. With a track record of amazing live performances, songwriting credits for Christina Milian’s “Say I,” and background vocal appearances on several albums, including Missy’s forthcoming album, there’s no question that the sassy 21 year-old Jazmine is prepared to introduce the world to her unique brand of bold and beautiful music.

Jazmine Sullivan – Forever Don’t Last

“Forever Don’t Last” is the second single from Jazmine Sullivan’s forthcoming new album, Reality Show.
Now, she’s back once again with a heartfelt acoustic track titled “Forever Don’t Last.” The new record is classic Jazmine, and will have you dimming the lights, sparking up a few scented candles and daydreaming about the one who got away. The vocal powerhouse is straight sangin’ on this one about a relationship that went ill, not because she didn’t try to make it work, but because nowadays when people say “forever,” they don’t really mean it.

Jazmine Sullivan – Forever Don’t Last Lyrics:
I had high hopes for us
Like I was on dope for us baby
Chasin’ after a high that I’ll never get back again
So we turn into three long years
And it became painfully clear that we
We would never see those days again
But I guess forever, doesn’t last too long forever
Doesn’t last too long forever
Doesn’t last too long forever these days, hey
And I try to believe that we could make it
But trying don’t work, so I just have to face that forever
Doesn’t last too long forever these days, hey
Still think about the good times we had
And how you used to make me laugh
But baby I know most times we were mental revolve
So everytime I wanna call, baby what always helps
Is when I think of the pain, and the red eyes
I’m better off by myself
Cause forever, doesn’t last too long forever
Doesn’t last too long forever
Doesn’t last too long forever these days, hey
And I try to believe that we could make it
But trying don’t work, so I just have to face that forever
Doesn’t last too long forever these days, hey
God knows I gave it my all
I couldn’t save us from falling
Cause some people aren’t meant to be together forever forever
Cause forever, doesn’t last too long forever
Doesn’t last too long forever
Doesn’t last too long forever these days, hey
And I try to believe that we could make it
But trying don’t work, so I just have to face that forever
Doesn’t last too long forever these days, hey.
