Check out ESSENCE Music Festival headliner Jill Scott's funky new video for "Shame," the lead single from her forthcoming album, "Light of the Sun." The video was shot in the Philadelphia neighborhood where Jill grew up. The location of the shoot is the Cecil B. Moore Recreation Center, where Jill spent her summers as a kid. When she heard the rec center was closing, Jill and her Blues Babe foundation paid for repairs on the center to keep it open.

The video features some old friends making cameos, such as Eve, who is featured on the track, and Black Thought from The Roots. If you love Jill like we love Jill, you're going to eat this up!

"Light of the Sun" hits stores on June 28th. For more information on Jill Scott visit www.MissJillScott.com.
