Who’s Got Soul? The Sisterhood of Erykah Badu and Jill Scott

BY: GURU JAY


  
“Hey sister, soul sister.”

Gwen Stefani replaces Christina Aguilera on the Voice this season. I will miss the soulful Lady Marmalade’s presence. But I’ll get by playing Erykah Badu and Jill Scott music.

If Tyrese Gibson and Mark Wahlberg are brothers from another mother, then Badu and Scott are sisters from another father.

Everyone enjoys the best things life offers. That’s why women spend countless hours shopping for the right handbag to go with their brand spanking new designer jeans.

Erykah is eccentric and Jill is classic. Like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re getting with Badu. And you receive your monies worth with Scott’s performances.

Who’s got soul? They do!

These soul sisters create crossword puzzles with their lyrics. Plus, their distinct voices sound heavenly. Erykah sings riddles and Jill channels Maya Angelou.

Erykah and Jill are supreme singers. You can’t have a Hip-Hop conservation without mentioning them. What is more, their spiritual songs take you on a journey of discovery.

They bare their souls and expose their essence. If you want music without boundaries, if you need passionate deliveries, then play Erykah Badu and Jill Scott on Pandora. Like Lauryn Hill and Janet Jackson, they are natural phenomena.

Nowadays, celebrities hide behind hash tags. It seems they all care about breaking news. Ask yourself why they are pushing the same agenda. Do any of them think for themselves?

Now the Window Seat singer hates groupthink. Erykah Badu makes it clear where she stands in her video. Likewise, Jill Scott goes against the grain of popular culture when required.


Badu and Scott would make excellent Home Economics teachers because they understand the importance of sisterhood. Additionally, they give back beyond their communities in various ways. One thing they share in common is their compassion for people.
