JILL SCOTT’S “SO IN LOVE” REIGNS AT #1 FOR 18 WEEK RECORD ON URBAN AC RADIO
A busy 2011 for Jill, earlier this year she took The Jill Scott Experience to the 2011 BET Awards performing the scintillating album gem "Rolling Hills," as well as performances on "The Today Show," "Live! With Regis & Kelly," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," and "Live! With Jimmy Kimmel." Never one to slow down, later this year, Scott is set to perform at the prestigious 18th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert alongside Sugarland, Janelle Monae and David Gray, BET's Black Girls Rock alongside Mary J. Blige, as well as the legendary Soul Train Awards, which honors Gladys Knight and Earth, Wind & Fire. In December, the songstress will also perform a string of hits including her heart-wrenching "Hear My Call" on the 2011 Vh1 Divas special.
After gracing the cover of Billboard Magazine which named 2011 as "The Year Of Jill Scott ", Jill returned from a four year musical hiatus to release her widely anticipated album The Light Of The Sun which garnered rave reviews across every outlet from Entertainment Weekly who remarked, "she returns to R&B like she never left... it's a welcome flashback," to The New York Times who commented, "Ms. Scott's songs are proudly and forthrightly feminine, and they set out to persuade and motivate... It's a lesson her songs live up to." People Magazine listed the album in their "Critics' Choice" lauding that The Light of The Sun reflects that 2000 classic with its hip-hop swagger and spoken-word musings... Wow."
