Some artists are just....ILL! And FYI: you can't spell Jill without the "ill". Pioneering the evolvement of the sub genre neo-soul, @missjillscott debuted her classic LP Who is Jill Scott: Words and Sounds vol. 1 in the summer of 2000. A breath of fresh air in the "bling bling" era of music, the world rejoiced, relaxed, and listened. The first three singles off this collection all earned Grammy nominations in the Best Female R&B Performance category three separate years respectively ("GETTIN IN THE WAY" -2001, "A LONG WALK" -2002, & "HE LOVES ME (LYZEL IN E FLAT) -2003). Rolling Stone listed Jill's debut as one of the best albums of the 2000s. Millions agreed as the album went double platinum and began a sweet infatuation we all now have nearly 2 decades later with Jilly from Philly.
