3. JILL SCOTT- THE LIGHT OF THE SUN (JUNE 21st)
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jill Scott[/lastfm] is definitely one of the most respected in the game. So of course her fourth studio album, Light of the Sun, is one that is highly anticipated. Essence.com developed a web-series dedicated to the album called Light of the Sundays, which started May 8th and will continue every Sunday until the album drops.
In the series Jill explains how she wants her fans to experience her new album:
I hope they bump it in their cars, I hope they make love to it … All of those things. I make music for people.
Listeners can expect to hear Scott‘s usual fusion of hip hop, spoken word, RnB, jazz, and funk; but with a freedom that was absent from her previous albums. In my eyes, Ms. Scott can do no wrong, but you be the judge.
