Heaux Tales is an EP by American R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan. It was released by RCA Records on January 8, 2021. Its release date was confirmed on December 2, 2020. Described as Sullivan’s “fourth and bleakest album”, it is her first release since 2015’s critically-acclaimed Reality Show. It includes features from Ari Lennox, Anderson .Paak,and H.E.R.. The album was primarily recorded in Sullivan’s Philadelphia home.

While an EP, it has also been variably identified as “a concept album” and “schematic, a successor to didactic concept albums like The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Structurally, six “spoken word interludes” “are followed by songs that flesh them out as character studies”. The themes explored include feminism, sexuality, classism, and body-shaming among other lyrical topics supported by narrative interludes between each song.
