Jill Scott exemplifies the true definition of a woman. Fresh off of receiving the first ever Lady of Soul Award at this year’s Soul Train Awards, the singer-songwriter has released a poignant video for her latest single, “Back Together.”
The visuals feature the principal dancer of Broadway’s The Lion King, Donna Vaughn, accompanied by the Complexions Contemporary Ballet ensemble. It opens with Donna wandering along a busy New York City street, seemingly tortured by her thoughts. Just as she’s about to lapse into a mental breakdown, the scene cuts to her surrounded by the dancers.
As Donna and the dancers gracefully emulate strength and fearlessness, the images of hopelessness transition into hope. Inspired by Jill’s son, Jett, “Back Together” is an empowering anthem aptly shown in the video. Take a look below and watch as Jill puts it “Back Together.”
