ESSENCE Music Festival headliner Jill Scott is kicking off 2011 with a bang. The Grammy-winning singer recently announced that she would be releasing her fourth studio album, "The Light of the Sun" later on this year. She's now also under a new distribution deal with Warner Bros. Records, which means her reach could be even wider.

" A lot has gone on in my life since my last album, so I'm extremely excited to share the new music with all of the people that have supported me these past ten plus years," she says. "This album is very revealing, and I can't wait for everyone to hear it."

We can't wait to hear what Jilly from Philly has to offer this time around.
