Jill Scott will mark the 20th anniversary of her debut album, Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1, by performing it in full during a North American tour in Spring 2020.
The 21-date outing takes place in February and March 2020. It kicks off in Kansas City, Missouri on February 7th and comes to an end in Columbia, South Carolina on March 21st. Along the way, she will perform in major cities and smaller regions alike. Each stop will feature a full performance of Who Is Jill Scott? by Scott in addition to several songs from her other releases.
“I’m going to be true to the album setlist,” Scott told Billboard. “I’ll do every song in the order of the album. My audience should bring their CD covers. Some may know the list by heart. I will create musical arrangements for the songs purposes with new energy but keep the integrity of the original songs they love. Expect theatre. Expect incredible musicianship. Expect love.”

Scott’s most recent album, Woman, came out in 2015. Since then, she’s kept herself busy in the arts. She was featured on Pusha T’s King Push — Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, Big K.R.I.T.’s 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time, and The Hamilton Mixtape. She also appeared in the RZA-directed movie Love Beats Rhymes. Arguably best of all, she upheld her legacy over time, even locking down a spot on Barack Obama’s 2019 summer playlist.
