Jazmine Sullivan’s Heaux Tales success story continues to have happy endings. The Grammy-nominated vocalist’s hit single “Pick Up Your Feelings” has been certified platinum by the RIAA with more than one million equivalent units sold.
This certification is a crowning accomplishment for Sullivan, marking her first RIAA certification for a single, as well as her first platinum-selling record.
The kiss-off anthem previously stamped her second certified gold title with her critically-lauded debut album Fearless as her first.
“Pick Up Your Feelings” also notes her very first number-one single on R&B radio and Billboard Adult R&B charts.
November 2021 was a strong month for Sullivan. First, she received news that she was a triple nominee at the 2022 Grammys, scoring nods in the R&B field: Best R&B Performance and Song for “Pick Up Your Feelings” and Best R&B Album (Heaux Tales).
She collaborated with Curtis Harding and Leon Bridges that same month while announcing a headlining tour to support Heaux Tales. The trek starts on Feb. 14, featuring Tiana Major9 as the special guest.
Before last year concluded, Sullivan’s Heaux Tales was declared the Best R&B Album of 2021 by Rated R&B. Around the same time, she hinted at its sequel with a teaser of a new tale.
Apart from Sullivan’s recent Grammy considerations, she scored four 2022 NAACP Image Awards nominations, including Outstanding Female Artist and Outstanding Album (Heaux Tales).
