One of the leading voices of the neo-soul movement of the early-2000s, Jill Scott first came into music via collaboration with The Roots, co-writing their 1999 Grammy Award-winning hit "You Got Me." The following year, she released her debut album, Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds, Vol. 1, which was critically acclaimed and earned her four Grammy Award nominations, as well as launching several successful singles. Since then, Scott has proven herself to be one of the most consistent artists of her genre, releasing four more albums that have peaked in the top five of the Billboard 200, with two of them reaching number one, and three of them reaching the top spot on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums Chart. To date, Scott has won three Grammy Awards, three Soul Train Awards and four Lady of Soul Awards. She is also a successful actress, starring in the films Hounddog, Why Did I Get Married? and Get On Up, as well as playing the lead in the BBC/HBO series The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. She is currently starring in the BET+ series First Wives Club alongside Ryan Michelle Bathe and Michelle Buteau.
