There’s plenty of new music on the horizon and our 2017 ESSENCE Festival performers are definitely in the mix.

The latest Festival favorite to bless the masses with new tunes is none other than Philly’s own Jazmine Sullivan, who is featured on the song and in the video for singer/songwriter Niia’s new single “Sideline.” The smooth track hears both of the talented ladies team up to belt out lyrics about the frustration of being in a seemingly one-sided relationship where their efforts aren’t reciprocated by their significant other.

ESSENCE Festival 2017 single-night tickets and ticket packages are on sale now! For more info and the latest news, visit our Festival page here.

Per usual, Ms. Sullivan’s vocal and visual slay is on a thousand.

Be sure to grab your tickets to see Jazmine Sullivan light up the stage, alongside more of the biggest names in music, at the 2017 ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans this July.
