Jill Scott Shares What Went Into Her 'Verzuz' Battle on Instagram Live

A record-breaking weekend with Erykah Badu

For her second time on Instagram Live, Jill Scott joined Big Tigger from RADIO.COM and V-103 Atlanta's in the Verizon Artist Lounge.

With her stunning personality and beautiful spirit, Jill Scott arrived to talk about her Verzuz battle with Erykah Badu, life in quarantine, and her music. Bringing in over 68,000 views and a surprise attendance form Swizz Beats, co-founder of the Verzuz platform alongside Timbaland.

The conversation between the two friends was much needed as Jill Scott and Erykah Badu's battle hit record-breaking numbers, surpassing Babyface Vs. Teddy Riley. Scott's high from the battle was still evident as she talked with Big Tigger who praised her about her "out the box" tracks choices, that have contributed to her music purchases going up since last Saturday. Jill shared the method to her madness.

"I did not want to do anything that was expected... like here's a hit, here's a hit... I heard about what happens in these things, but I wanted to share some music... I wanted to share some stuff that would maybe expand my audience....and then when they do more research and buy my catalog, which they are doing!" she joyously sang out.

Aside from talks on the battle, she updates us on the status of new music, possible tours, her mentor program, and more.

Big Tigger brought everything to light that we wanted to know about the soulful singer, while asking questions from the fans as well. One particular fan question stood out: "What have you learned, new or different about your craft, and or talent since quarantine?"

Jill took a beat before responding, "...there is a certain part of quiet that is mandatory for art, in order to hear it all, going in the backyard and listening to nature. I've learned that that is crucial... quieting oneself to hear everything... my pen has really enjoyed that. I'm writing all kinds of things. Adding, "I don't know when, I don't know why, I'm not judging it, I've got time. I can write my heart out and take a nap... I've never had this amount of time in my life ever."

We for one can't wait to see what the combined powers of that mind and pen have in store for us.
