Trace TV sat down with Jazmine Sullivan to talk about her new album ‘Love Me Back’, in which she collaborated with Ne-Yo on the track ‘U Get On My Nerves’, as well as her role in the movie ‘Red Tails’, a fictionalized portrayal of the Tuskegee Airmen.
“Ne-Yo. I was working in a movie with him called ‘Red Tails’. In Prague. Ne-Yo was doing a full day of shooting the movie and then going to the studio later on at night and I was just looking at him and going, ‘Wow, that’s a great work ethic to have.’ He asked me to come to the studio to work with him and I came, and he thought of the concept for the song and we started working from there. I think the reason why it was such a good chemistry was because we both really respect each other as artists and as writers. When he was writing I would feed off of him and I was writing he would feed off of me.”
