Jill Scott Covers Billboard Magazine
Jill Scott is on the latest issue of Billboard magazine looking gorgeous. This busty soul singer will be releasing her 4th album Light Of The Sun on Tuesday. She’s been on a hiatus from music since her movie roles and television show but she’s ready to make her come back.
On her new vibe she put into this album:
“Free. That’s the word I’ve been using. It’s exciting, because it’s on my own terms. I feel like my eyes are going to bulge out of my head. It’s like starting all over again. Music shouldn’t be a chore or feel like any kind of burden. It’s free and alive. And that’s where I am.”
On her unique recording methods this time around:
All I wanted was to choose collaborators who could embody the energy I was going for. Without any pretense, without knowing what I was going to say . . . there was no guidance except for the energy and spirit in the room. I’m a big Salvador Dali fan; he put his blood and everything else he had in his painting. That’s how it is for me. There’s no blood on this record, but there sure is some heart.”
On what she’s learned the last few years:
“I’ve missed myself. I’m sassy again, stronger. Now I understand this industry to a certain extent, and know how I work best. Having my son was one of the key factors in me leaving the old label. I need him to see me be as amazing as I can be so he feels fearless. I haven’t arrived at amazing yet. I’m in the process. But I want him to see me grow. I want to get another 30 years out of this amazing life of being an artist.”
