Find out more below…

Shifting a commendable 135,000 units in its first week of release, the album which has already spawned the single ‘Shame‘ is the very first time Scott has enjoyed the top spot of the Billboard Album chart.  The single ‘So In Love’ also lifted from the album peaked at #1 on the US Billboard R&B Chart.

    CONGRATS ARE DUE. Jill had the 2nd best performance at the BET. She has so much class and her voice is out of this world

    And to answer the question, no she won’t be No.1 next week, because she is a pure soul/r n’b act that hasn’t sold out so she has a certain following that has already bought her album. She will have consistent sales though and I’m hoping she’ll get that gold certification.(You asked the question only for the B stans to rave about their/your fave, didn’t you??)

    I’m happy fror Jill. I bought her album. It was a great album if you like jazz and bedroom type music. Vocally she did not any surprises and many of the slow tracks kind of blend together like the same song. Still I’m happy for her. No need to compare her to Beyonce since their release dates are different weeks. Also, Jill is more of a jazz and r&b superstar not an international top seller like Beyonce. I highly doubt Jill will get the same buzz and heavy promo train like Beyonce and Jill’s promotional budget is not even half of what Beyonce gets so who will end up on top of the charts next week is not a fair question.

    Congrats Jill!!! Enjoy it while it last 🙂

    I love Jill but Beyonce is most def gonna outsell her and knock her down from #1. Not tryna be hateful because I love me some Jill Scott but the truth is truth and the truth is always welcome!!

    Congrats Jill. On number 1.

    I’m sitting here looking at us hail 135,000 as commendable. I remember the good ole days where out the gate people were doing gold numbers. Times have really changed that is crazy. And I’m only 26 and remember a very different music climate.

    Congrats Jill from Phill!

    Haven’t gotten a chance to listen to the album yet but I’ve only heard good stuff about it. I liked the singles so far and her voice is smokin.

    @Mrincredible! What you smokin?

    Jill Scott is an awesome performer with true soul and talent, her music touches your soul. Jingles dont last forever, only real music… Jill Scott will be 60 singing on stage her soulful music and we will still be amazed, Beyonce will be 60 singing limited amount of songs because majority of her music is booty shaking music… and no one wants to see that from a 60 year old.
