In 2008, Jazmine Sullivan stepped onto the music scene with her debut single Need U Bad, produced by Missy Elliott, which became No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. After a three-year hiatus, she is back with her third studio album, Reality Show, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart.
The recipient of Billboard’s Rising Star Award, Sullivan recently discussed her break from the music industry, writing a hit song for singer Monica and meeting Stevie Wonder.
It all started when Chris Rock’s then five-year-old daughter asked him, “Daddy, how come I don’t have good hair?”
The question set the comedian on a path to learn more about the importance African American women place on their hair, specifically what they will go through to have straight or relaxed hair.The result is “Good Hair,” an entertaining documentary opening Oct. 23 that takes a look at how women achieve that goal.From visiting beauty shops where perms are applied to traveling to India to see how weaves are created, Rock leaves no stone unturned in his quest.
