It’s always risky to put your spin on someone else’s classic.

Just ask Jazmine Sullivan.

The Philadelphia songstress decided to cover Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” in a recent recording session for VIBE V Series.

Sullivan’s new album Reality Show is set for release next week. It’s her first release in nearly five years.

Okayplayer.com praised Sullivan’s Houston cover, writing that she “provided yet another clinic in staggering vocal technique.” Music personality Miss Info also praised Sullivan’s version on her site, saying simply: “boy did she deliver.”
