Singer Jill Scott’s newest album, Woman, makes its debut at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. This marks the second album from the Philly songstress. The album sold 58,000 in sales and it’s a follow up to her previously chart-topping The Light of the Sun. Woman was released on Scott’s Blues Babe imprint, through Atlantic Records. The album feature the single, “Fool’s Gold”.
She’s also the first solo woman to have a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 in nearly five months. The last to do so was Kelly Clarkson, on the chart dated March 21, when her Piece By Piece album debuted at No. 1. This is also her second No. 1 that comes nearly 15 years after she debuted on the Billboard 200 with her first album, Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1.
Currently, Scott is prepping for her new movie CoCo co-starring rappers Common & Azealia Banks.
