Every Sunday from now until Jill Scott’s “The Light of the Sun” album is released on June 21st, ESSENCE.com will feature exclusive content from the artist. This week the ESSENCE Music Festival headliner (got tickets?) is launching a mini listening session on YouTube for her album “The Light of the Sun.” Above, you can link to a YouTube playlist of 8 tracks from the new album — you can hear Jill and co-producer JR Hutson talk about the making of each song followed by 2-3 minute snippets of each track. Listen to the entire playlist all the way through, or click on the track names to skip to different songs! Just in case you can’t wait to get your hands on Jill’s newest album, you can pre-order your copy here. For more information on Jill Scott, visit MissJillScott.com.
