Jill Scott Scores Her Second No. 1 Album On Billboard 200:
Congratulations are in order for Jill Scott, who recently debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. Scott's fifth set enters at No. 1 with 62,000 equivalent album units (58,000 in pure album sales).
I'm very proud of Jill Scott, as it's a well deserved achievement. With recent R&B releases, I've noticed other R&B acts support the release, such as addressing those on social media about the record.
I enjoyed 'Woman,' though it wasn't a highly buzzed album in my opinion, such as her previous releases. It wasn't Jill's fault, as I was referring to not hearing any singles off of 'Woman' frequently played on Urban radio, or coming across her 'You Don't Know' video on TV, which may could've been to the singles being poorly promoted.
Following the release of 'You Don't Know,' Jill Scott performed the single at 'Black Girls Rock,' and released a video the exact day as the release of the single. The following singles, 'Fool's Gold' and 'Closure' however weren't promoted in the same form, as Jill Scott didn't release a video for the singles, nor perform it following its release (Though 'Closure' was released closely during the release date of 'Woman,' which could explain the singer not promoting it, but 'Fool's Gold,' definitely should've been fairly promoted, as it slightly caught buzz compared to the other single releases)
Still, I'm glad that Jill Scott did receive much support for 'Woman,' as she clearly deserves it. Jill Scott is a promising artist, and truly underrated, so she definitely deserves every amount of success. It's great to see R&B in such a rising position. Congrats once again Jill, and hopefully we receive a video for 'Fool's Gold' or 'Closure.' Also, what are your favorite songs from 'Woman.' I'm really loving 'Can't Wait' at the moment.
