"The Light Of The Sun" is a good new album. My favorite cut is "Shame" This is a funky tune with a good groove. Eve lends her talents rapping on this song. "Blessed" is a song where Jill counts her blessings. Having a son and parents who are all healthy and happy are indeed blessings to be thankful for. "So In Love" is a tune with a good beat. A singer named Anthony Hamilton lends his talents on this great R and B love song. Doug E. Fresh provides skillful beat boxing on the track "All Cried Out". This song sounds very playful. This is because of the piano playing on the track. Jill slows it down with the smooth track "Hear My Call" This is a spiritual song about turning to God when times are tough. The musical arrangements on this song are beautiful. The tone of this song is gorgeous. "Until Then I Imagine" is another song I love. Jill sounds very sensual on this song. "When I Wake Up" is a song that fills me with hope. Jill makes me believe that each day presents a new opportunity to learn. So Gone My Mind is another sexy sounding song about a woman's actions do not follow a woman's thoughts."Womanifesto" is a poetic few minutes. This features Jill talking about the things that make Jill feel strong. "Rolling Hills" is a soulful way to end this record. I love this cut and the entire CD.

Executive produced by Jill Scott and J.R Hutson (Pharell, Faith Evans),The Light Of The Sunfeatures appearances by rappers Paul Wall, Doug E. Fresh, and Eve and traverses the rocky terrain of love, longing and loss. The first single, "So in Love," is a duet with Anthony Hamilton. When Scott first heard the record, a soul-filled melody that evokes the legendary pairing of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, she was moved to tears.
"This music came about in a very organic way," says Scott reflecting on the free-style jam sessions that resulted in the creation ofThe Light Of the Sun. "I've enjoyed the recording process more that I ever have before."
