Jill Scott Finally Leaves Hidden Beach Label, Signs With Warner Bros.
After a long legal battle with her last record label, Jill Scott has announced that she is joining the Warner Bros. family. Deets inside...
With over 4 million records sold, three time Grammy Award winning singer/actress Jill Scott has announced a new distribution deal with Warner Bros. Records. The resulting relationship has birthed her fourth studio album, The Light Of The Sun, to be released later this year.
Asked about the new project, the "Golden" singer revealed:
“I’ve always looked to empower my fans through my message of love, independence and strength,” comments Jill. 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. This album is very revealing, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
Shawn Gee, of Sports & Entertainment Financial Group, and Jill's business partner is most excited about the partnership they've formed with Warner Bros.
“As the music industry evolves, the relationship between artist, management and label is constantly changing. Foregoing the traditional formula and strategically creating a true partnership amongst us all, I have to commend Warner Bros. for recognizing Jill’s worldwide brand and acting on it.”
Fans can expect to hear a preview of the Jill's new album when she headlines the upcoming Essence Music Festival alongside Kanye West and Mary J. Blige, July 4th weekend. Work Jill!
