Jazmine Sullivan has been in the music industry for nearly a decade, but her story is quite different than, say, the Adeles of the world.
In an interview with the Associated Press, the Grammy-nominated songstress said that she feels as though Black R&B singers’ talent is overshadowed by White soul artists.
“I guess I’m glad that people are recognizing me in some way and kind of seeing there’s a little injustice in how Black soul artists are received,” she said. “But at the same time, I try not to focus so much on the negativity.”
This year, Sullivan earned three Grammy nods in the R&B categories—Best Traditional R&B Performance, Best R&B Song and Best R&B Album—but though she has been nominated 11 times since her 2008 debut, she has never won.
