Jill Scott's characteristic groove and sultry voice is back with her newest album, The Light of the Sun. Her first album in four years, The Light of the Sun pleases with its blend of Philly-brewed neo-soul, throwback jazz accompaniments and Scott's silky, organic vocals.

Scott infuses her seductive and infectious music styling with hip-hop elements, including rap superstars Doug E. Fresh, Paul Wall and Eve. The Light of the Sun takes its listeners on a swift tour of emotional ups and downs over the album's 15 songs.  

Previous recommendation: 'Thug Life.'
