Executive produced by Jill Scott and J.R Hutson (Pharell, Faith Evans), The Light Of The Sun features appearances by rappers Paul Wall, Doug E. Fresh, and Eve and traverses the rocky terrain of love, longing and loss. The first single, "So in Love," is a duet with Anthony Hamilton. When Scott first heard the record, a soul-filled melody that evokes the legendary pairing of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, she was moved to tears.

"This music came about in a very organic way," says Scott reflecting on the free-style jam sessions that resulted in the creation of The Light Of the Sun. "I've enjoyed the recording process more that I ever have before."
