“Lions, Tigers & Bears” is the third single released from American contemporary R&B/soul singer-songwriter Jazmine Sullivan‘s debut album, Fearless.
“Lions, Tigers and Bears” uses a sample from Salaam Remi’s “Sheila’s Playground”. It was written by Jazmine Sullivan and W. Mann. The song is a soulful melody about love and heartbreak using instrumentation of a violin. The protagonist states that she’s not scared of things most people fear, such as facing carnivorous animals, but she’s scared to love because of potential heartbreak.
