J Records sent singer Jazmine Sullivan’s debut record, Need U Bad, to radio on May 26. A little over two months later, the Missy Elliot and Lamb produced single is a Top 5 record at Urban radio across the country and has been a fixture on DJBooth’s R&B chart for the past 10 weeks. What does success in a short amount of time mean? Ah yes, a remix. Jumping on board the reggae-tinged beat is Mr. Paper Trail, T.I., who opens the new version with some creative wordplay about his relationships of old. As for the vocals from the 21-year-old Philly native, they are unchanged from the original. But, as they say –whoever it is “they” are—if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. Sullivan’s currently untitled debut album will be released sometime later this year.
