Jill Scott to Release The Light of the Sun


The incomparable miss Jill Scott is returning with her fourth studio album on June 21st and we’re beside ourselves with excitement. Thanks to NPR and their “first listen” stream of the entire work, you won’t have to wait to preview the super dopeness. It’s amazing to be able to say that the dynamic vocalist is taking her sound to new heights with a new style that actually works – not something you can say for most folks. That’s a timeless artist right there.
