[MUSIC VIDEO] Jazmine Sullivan X Bryson Tiller - Insecure

Post by: Montrez Rambo

"I'm a lady not a slave... you my n*gga not my master, I'll escape"...

Jazmine Sullivan is really coming into her own with the lyrics in new collaboration Insecure. Bryson is also on the song but we're gonna politely ignore him because... yeah, we just are.

This has become one of my favourite songs of the summer, and its one of those textbook Jazmine Sullivan moments where she changes up her sound but her scornful, mournful soul comes through.

Vocally, she delivered some solid lows, and solid mid belts. The rasp was well managed but turned all the way up at the end. Some may like it, some may not. The production, with its unfussy loop, kicking and pausing, allows for focus to be funnelled towards the simple vocals and lyrics. To have done anything else would have over-egged the cake.

The music video itself, was simple. It was a keke with the girls, Jazmine rocking them wigs dealing with her insecure man via text message. We've all been there.

Overall, issa bop! Here goes.
