Jill Scott Visits ‘GMA’ As New Album ‘Woman’ Set For #1 Debut On Billboard 200


A day after the release of ‘Woman’ – the fifth studio release from singer/actress Jill Scott – industry analysts predicted the album would move less than 50,000 units its first full week.

Well, that was then.

For, as of this morning, the ‘Gettin’ In the Way’ wailer is getting in the way of competition gunning for the Billboard 200’s top spot next week.  See the latest upward revision of her new album’s sales and peep her give a show-stopping performance of new tune ‘Closure’ on ‘Good Morning America’ this morning:

‘Woman’ First Week Sales Prediction:  55,000-65,000

Debut Position:  #1

The numbers give Scott her second ride at #1 after her last album, ‘The Light of the Sun,’ beamed at the top of the Billboard 200 in 2011.

      Can we talk about how she smashed that performance and how r&b is going to be at number one for the second time this month. I feel a sea change. Thank god! Now hopefully these record companies will actually start to invest in real r&b.

      CIARA had the first f***** Certified GOLD song this year by an R&B female artist, new face of Roberto Cavalli, hit NBC show, Brand Ambassador for Topshop, sang the National Anthem for the MLB Allstar Game & Dance Like We’re Making Love is climbing the charts, & it’s the hottest video out in a long time! But you dumb h*** say she’s losing? B**** what the f*** are you doing?

    Congrats are in order for Jilly from Philly! She has a solid fan base and career. Leave Ciara out of it, she is starting from scratch. I have to listen to the album even though I prefer her older stuff.

  20. another bty day something ain’t wrong July 29, 2015

    Congrats to Jill Scott and some people don’t know that she have an album out

  21. Ayyy July 29, 2015

    not a huge ciara fan, but her album release timing was wrong, urban music has has a huge surge in the last few months, the trend is obvious , meek, future, tyrese, jill scott and hopefully more, if ciara had release now she would have done at least 50k , apple music also is helping ,so fans are actually listening before putting their money,

    Ciara’s album was a good to be honest,

  22. Brazil July 29, 2015

    Wow! Jill congrats!!! It’s all about staying true to your music and not becoming trendy!!!! Can’t say it more now Beyoncé needs to stay true and make another Dangerously in Love album, the only classic she has in my opinion
