BREAKING THINGS, the latest and fieriest song from Jasmine pairs a passionate vocal with an emotionally forthright lyric and a compulsively danceable beat. Her debut music video underscores the urbane ferocity of her lyrics and the real sense of peril that the song generates. The camera catches the singer in a desolate stretch of desert: we watch her walk barefoot over the scrub and sand, and catch her in moments of reflection in a motel room on an empty highway. Her mascara is smudged from crying, her posture is pleading, her pain is palpable. Why? Because of a man who has torn up her life, and who she can’t seem to quit. As she always does, Crowe brings the narrator’s predicament to life in vivid color and bold sound. It’s a writer’s gift, a rare talent, and one she’s just beginning to share with audiences.
