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

Jill Scott took a moment to drop a few details about her forthcoming projects during a press conference at the 2013 Essence Music Festival. The big surprise was news of two new albums tentatively planned for the coming year. The first project is a collection of lullabies that is currently receiving the final touches after being recorded in a mere four days. The album includes production from Lil John Roberts, Robert Glasper, Andre Harris and Derrick Hodge. The second LP - a project whose name remains under wraps - includes production from 9th Wonder. Jill Scott's offers no further detail, except to say that the project will be different on the ears and ultimately representative of her own evolution. Check the footage below for the full explanation.
