Jazmine Sullivan follows up “Dumb” with a powerful second single, “Forever Don’t Last.”
The stripped-down ballad showcases Sullivan’s vocal prowess, as she sings about a relationship she fought to save.
“I guess forever doesn’t last too long these days/ And I tried to believe that we can make it/ But trying don’t work/ So I just had to face that forever doesn’t last too long these days,” she belts on the hook.
Sullivan told Billboard in May that “Forever Don’t Last” is her most personal song on her forthcoming fall album, Reality Show.
“The most personal song is called ‘Forever [Don’t Last],'” she said. “I’m basically crying on that song. It’s a ballad, and that’s classic Jazmine. It’s a letting-go song which is why it’s so personal. I feel like I came to a point in my relationship where [I needed] to let go and move on. I just had to do it.”
