So, I’m just super grateful, in shock, and excited to share this moment with my loved ones who have seen me go through all the things I have in my life.”

“I actually didn’t know it would get this response,” the RCA artist told Glamour. “Because it was an EP, I didn’t know how people would respond to the tales. For me, they were the meat of the project and a huge part of why I even wanted to do this."

Jazmine added, "I needed these stories told. They are personal stories. These are my best friends and members of my family. It started off so small — literally just our regular conversations. I knew it was special to me, but I didn’t know how deep it would be to other women.”
