Hit R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan who has 2 albums out and is only 23 from Philly has moments ago via her official twitter page announces "she is taking a break from music". Jazmine has been singing since she was very young. She is also the protégé of rapper Missy Elliott. Her debut single "Need U Bad" reached number one on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, while her second single, "Bust Your Windows" peaked at number four.

Sullivan was initially signed to Jive Records at the age 16.
