In case you didn’t know, Jill Scott is in fact back. After taking a break from the music scene for some time, Jill is bringing us up to speed with her new album Woman — that also happens to be her second number one album on the Billboard 200 chart.
The 43-year-old Grammy winner and actress has opened up about life as a single mom, and how she’s moving on from divorce and a broken engagement. No matter how much pain she’s faced, one thing is quite clear: Her 6-year-old son Jet remains her constant light at the end of the tunnel.
“Jet is the reason for putting me back together, absolutely. He’s teaching me about everything, from nature to honesty to being vulnerable. He’s – wow!”
Questioning whether or not she could be a good single mother, Scott tells the San Diego Union-Tribune she receives confirmation every time Jet hits her with the knowledge she tried to drop on him.
“He shines a light on me, all the time, and then I get those good hugs and kisses from him, and it’s everything.”
It’s quite evident that young Jet continues to strengthen his mother, likely in ways hell never know.
“Jet is the reason for putting me back together, absolutely. He is teaching me with his beautiful, innocent, wholehearted, childlike love.”
