5 Times Jill Scott’s Lyrics Told the Story of Our Lives

It’s been 15 years since Jilly from Philly hit the scene and she’s been dropping golden nuggets of truth the whole way.

The ESSENCE Festival alum and ESSENCE Black Women in Music honoree released Woman, her 5th studio album today and we can’t wait to see what other highs and lows she’s bound to take us through.

In honor of Jill’s new music and her old, we’re breaking down the lyrics that told the story of our lives:

Stand-out Lyrics:
Suga honey girl, fly, fly away
I been a lady up to now don’t know how much more I can take
Queens shouldn’t swing if you know what I mean
But I’m ’bout to take my earrings off get me some vaseline

Stand-out Lyrics:
You ain’t no saint, we all are sinners
But you put your good foot down and make your soul a winner
I respect that, man you’re so phat, and you’re all that, plus supreme
Then you’re humble, man I’m numb with your feeling, I can feel everything that you bring

Stand-out Lyrics:
I’m strumming my own freedom
Playing the God in me
Representing His glory
Hope he’s proud of me, yeah

Stand-out Lyrics:
Four thirty, can’t wait to get home
Nah, girl, I got something else to do
Go ‘head, really, get your groove on
‘Cause tonight my man’s coming through, yes
We gonna have to connect some other time

Stand-out Lyrics:
I know if I pick up this phone
Write this letter, send this two way
I know I’m gonna say some things
I know you gonna say some things
That we both don’t mean to say

Jill Scott’s new album, Woman is available on itunes today.
