Jill Scott will release her anticipated fifth studio album WOMAN this Friday, July 24, and she’s getting some much appreciated daytime TV promo in this week. Making an appearance on ABC’s ‘The View’ on Tuesday, the soulful siren performed her latest single “Fools Gold,” and chatted with co-hosts Whoopie Goldberg and Rosie Perez.
Jilly from Philly had the audience swaying side to side with her groove, and after the performance she explained what came first in all of her versatile talents.
“The writing came first. I love to sing, but if I didn’t have something to say, I didn’t want to sing. So I waited, and as a poet it started working out…That’s when I started writing songs, then that came into theater…but theater, as you know, is hard, with eight shows a week, and I got a record deal in the middle of that, and I thought I’ll do that instead.”
In promotion of the album Jill will be coming to a city near you on her summer tour, see dates here.
