Love Me Back

Genre: R&B; Lead Performer: Jazmine Sullivan

Jazmine Sullivan never really needed to be wanted. If boys didn?t like her, fine — she?d just calmly bust their car windows with a baseball bat. But now the Philly singer?s begging America to Love Me Back, and these warm soul tracks and two-Gucci-?handkerchief ballads make it difficult not to. True to her nickname ”Mini MJB” (as in, Mary J. Blige), she?s the best kind of R&B paradox: the vulnerable diva. B+
