Grammy® award-winner singer-songwriter JILL SCOTT just dropped her new single “Fool’s Gold.

“We are very excited to announce Jill’s highly-anticipated tour schedule,” said Shawn Gee, Jill’s long time business partner and partner in the Maverick management firm. “Fans have patiently waited four years for new music, and when they hear Jill perform live this summer…it’ll be worth the wait!”
