Jill Scott released another single titled “So Blessed” Monday. Taken from her NAACP Image Award nominated album, “The Light of The Sun,” “So Blessed” follows songs like “Hear My Call” and “So In Love.”
“This record spoke to me as an inspiration for myself and for others to remember to count your personal blessings every day,” Scott says of the single, which impacted Urban AC radio Monday. “The money, cars, trophies, can all disappear immediately… it’s about what’s happening in your life like your family, friends and health.”
Produced by Dre and Vidal, “So Blessed” is described as a “mid tempo funky soul record”

In related news, Jill Scott upset Nicki Minaj’s fans, the Barbz, Monday night. After she tweeted about Minaj’s Grammy performance, fans attacked her for saying “Art for art sake I suppose. She has the right to express herself and she took that right. Nuff said.”
Responding to the messages from fans saying she was wrong for voicing her opinion and “Roman is Gonna Come For You!,” Scott claimed she always has and “always will” love Lil Kim. But, was overall disturbed over the “childish” messages from Minaj’s fans.
“Ok Love Village, let it go,” Scott told her fans. “They r children or very childish. It’s sad how teenagers lash out in arbitrary anger. I guess it’s the hormones. I wouldn’t hurt Nikki. Gud luc.”
Addressing the fan that said Roman, Minaj’s alter ego, was going to “come for” her, Scott said “in the name of Jesus, keep ur demons to yourself!”
