Jill Scott is completely aware of all the chatter online. On Wednesday (January 5), she took to Twitter to address the rumors, telling her thirsty fans to “hydrate” while noting she hopes people are just as excited to hear her new music and films.
“Say word!?!” she wrote. “I expect this energy when my new movies, albums and tv show drop. Ya’ll too much. #headedbacktowork #hydrate.”
She also attached a GIF of her embracing applause and bowing down to an audience.

Jill Scott previously went viral in 2018 when a provocative video surfaced of her singing on stage with a microphone during an Atlanta performance.
“Hi. I sing/act out all kinds of stories,” she wrote at the time. “You should cum to my shows. After a Jill Scott show, most people get splendidly laid by whoever they came with. #iftheydontFitup #stopfrontinusuckdicktoo. They also usually go on 2happier, more productive, focused, wealthy lives.”
The Grammy-winning singer was one of the earliest participants in Timbaland and Swizz Beatz’s Verzuz series, going up against Erykah Badu during the first season in May 2020. The three-hour celebration had around 700,000 viewers at its peak and saw Scott and Badu going through songs from their acclaimed catalogs.
