Jill Scott Gets Empowered On New Single "Closure" Off Her Upcoming 'Woman' LP

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

"Don't be expecting no breakfast baby / You got all you gon' get!" Jill Scott belts out on the hook of her incredibly funky new single "Closure." It's all about letting go on this one, a smart and powerful statement about letting a bad thing lie and moving on. Scott's voice soars over a med-tempo funk strut as she playfully trades notes with horn section, singing at us with one eyebrow raised and a withering smile on her face. "Closure" is the song you put on the morning after a break up, a tune to open the windows on and let the sunlight in because you're moving up and moving on. Following up on "Fools Gold," the track is the second single from Scott's upcoming LP Woman, which will drop on July 24th just as Scott is in the midst of an extensive U.S. summer tour. Stream the new track below and get ready to feel righteous--there's no second-guessing or begging forgiveness on this one. Miss Scott has her funky mind made up. No more quiche and homemade waffles.
