CRITIC REVIEWS

90
AllMusic

Just as potent and lasting as Fearless and Love Me Back, Reality Show completes one of the most impressive first-three-album runs.

81
Pitchfork

Sullivan, better than singers and songwriters in almost any genre, creates worlds where relationships take on more complex dynamics, but are immediate in their effect.

80
Slant Magazine

The Channel Oranges and Black Messiahs of the world may have her beat on sheer ambition, but her voice is no less essential.

Exclaim!

With Reality Show, Sullivan delivers an R&B album that feels like how R&B used to sound circa late 90's/early 2000 while still coming off as forward-looking.

Spin
As concept and program, Sullivan's best album to date boasts every curtain call and lighting effect designed to flatter its star.
80
HipHopDX

Sullivan’s long time away from music has given her a new outlook on life and Reality Show is all the better because of it.

70
Complex
Sullivan’s latest feels a lot more current—which should make it easier for the public to relate to.

The most underrated album of the year so far. This is a really standout album. One of the best R&B albums of the last years.
Best tracks: Mascara, Silver Lining, Let It Burn, Masterpiece.

Sullivan's 'Reality Show' is a worthwhile listen. She gets me out of my slump and changes up my music coloring in a way that gets me to smile, relax and just enjoy the richness of her R&B style. This is a substantive release that entertains the restlessness of my musical soul without causing me to cringe.

アメリカを代表するR&B歌姫が約5年ぶりにリリースした新作。これが長いブランクを全く感じさせないエネルギッシュかつバラエティ豊かな一枚に。中でもMeek Millのクールなバースが映えるM2は必聴。

Reality Show is a showstopper. With an infectious vocal style, Sullivan is at pure ease under every demanding pulse that shoots from her veins and into the singer's powerfully gorgeous record.

Killer Tracks: Mascara, Brand New, #HoodLove, Let It Burn, Veins, Masterpiece (Mona Lisa), If You Dare.

Un premier tiers de disque totipotent et qui lorgne vers le jazz et la soul sans s'affirmer réellement. Heureusement, le reste de l'opus s'émancipe et se lâche, la voix de Jazmine s'ancre dans une musicalité affirmée et généreuse.
