Jill Scott’s son Jett might one day follow in the R&B singer’s footsteps if a recent Instagram video is any indication.
The singer shared a video of her son perfectly hitting the high note in Minnie Riperton’s classic “Lovin’ You.”
“The Boy [said] “Mom, record this.” Really?????!?!?” the singer wrote as a caption on Instagram.
Jett, 9, is a fixture on his mom’s Instagram. Scrolling through the singer’s page, fans will see snaps of the two posing with former president Barack Obama or Jett enjoying a day at the beach.
Scott reflected on motherhood during a 2015 interview with ESSENCE, describing how things had changed since becoming a mom.
“He is the impetus of my own accountability. I don’t want to bring people into his life who aren’t healthy for him,” she said three years ago. “It matters to me how he views me. It matters that I’ve done the best I can to make a good decision because everything that I do is shaping who he is. I love him more every day and I want to be an example.”
Scott welcomed Jett in April 2009 with her one-time drummer, Li’l John Roberts, revealing shortly before his birth that her pregnancy had comes as a surprise.
“I didn’t think it was possible for me to have kids because I was told I couldn’t conceive. I had given up hope of becoming a mother one day,” she told ESSENCE, adding that the news had made her become more thoughtful and responsible.
“I’ve had to take a dose of the ‘big girl’ pill in many different areas. What I mean by that is, for so long I’ve been able to be carefree—frolicking in my life,” Scott continued. “Now I have to watch what I eat, how I eat, make sure I get enough rest. Before I was just running and now, I’m so much more responsible and thoughtful and that’s a good thing.”
