Jill Scott

I saw Jill Scott perform with Maxwell in Chicago a few years back, and after viewing her in all her glory (and at the time, with a big head of hair attached), I wondered why I hadn’t been a huge fan like everyone else for so long? I was two-stepping too hard in the United Center to her songs! After the concert, I did some research and realized, that she did indeed have THE jams. And I’m not just talking the well-known “He Loves Me,” “Getting in the Way,” and “A Long Walk.” I’m talking “Gotta Get Up,” “Lonely Whenever You’re Around,” “The Fact Is,” “Love Rain,” “How it Make You Feel” jams. And her new album hasn’t been a disappointment. She’s just a very real sistah (Remember the piece she wrote about black men dating white women? Or her words for the Grammy people?). And while other singers want to look like and act like what the industry wants, homegirl steps out the box…with a new hairstyle and pair of Gazelles everytime. *smiles*
