Published August 3, 2015

Jill Scott has extended hip hop and R&B’s rule on the Billboard 200 chart this year. Scott’s latest, Woman, debuted in first place, moving 62,000 units last week, which incorporates streaming figures, and 58,000 in pure album sales. 


Jilly from Philly celebrates her second No. 1 since The Light of the Sun, in 2011 and is the latest R&B album to top the charts, behind Tyreses Black Rose LP.

Womans placement on Billboard is doubly special for Scott, as the album commemorates the 15-year anniversary of her Grammy-winning studio debut, Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1.

The songstress is currently on tour promoting her new album, and will stop in Memphis tomorrow.
