When you think of what makes black music unique, soul would definitely be the characteristic that defines and separates black music from other genres of music. With June being “Black Music Month” it is rather fitting that Jill Scott would drop her fourth studio album “The Light of the Sun” on June 21.
Jill Scott definitely tops the list as our favorite soul sista! Scott is able to infuse many elements of black music: jazz, R&B, spoken word, and hip hop into her music to create a distinct sound that sets her apart from many of her female peers.
Recently Jill stopped in Detroit to grant a private hearing of her upcoming release “The Light of the Sun” to AC, Online Editor of Radio One Detroit’s 105.9 kiss-fm and HOT 102.7, and Colby Colb of Cleveland’s 107.9 who went to school with Jill years ago.
While Scott and Colby Colb broke down the track listing of her upcoming release, AC and Jill talked black music. Watch the interview below as Jill Scott reveals her three most memorable black music moments as an artist as well as her personal memorable moments as a music fan.
