Music Update:Ms. Sullivan's Farewell

Dammmmmn GINNNA!    
 Another one bites the dust! Earlier today on twitter Jazmine Sullivan stated :
 "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. i’m not saying i wont ever sing again in my life becuz i dont believe that. but in this moment… rt now… i got some things to figure out. i love u all and appreciate u soooooo much. u have no idea believe that. but in this moment… rt now… i got some things to figure out. i love u all and appreciate u soooooo much. u have no idea how much u’ve inspired me and fed my ego. but the truth is that i have to believe in me whether you all do or not. and thats what i’m lookin for that belief in myself. me. I. I love us. thanks for being here for me and riding with me on this journey. let us continue." (via @jsullivanmusic)

I dont know about you guys but I am mind boggled about her decision. I know she has to be frustrated with her album sales and lack of pr team amongst other things. But she might not be where she wants to be right now but she is getting there...
Jazmine Sullivan currently has a song out with Eminem called Cocaine which I guarantee will be played on heavy rotations very soon on every radio station. Jazmine strong vocal control will and has taken her far for a new artist.

Like ‘Ye said “Don’t leave while ya hot, that’s how Mase screwed up!” As a supporter of good music and the struggle to even get your music heard world wide this decision will not be wise; if she did try to come back she will definitely have a difficult time because her fan base is not strong and she is still finding herself as an artist.

Good Luck Jazi

At times you do need to step away from it all and reevaluate yourself and your surroundings and get yourself right, so you come back you come back as something strong(er).

I thinks this will hurt her career. Modak: I'm Pretty sure the people in artist development spoke to her as well.
