'Southpaw' Soundtrack Has Some Enjoyable Performances

Among the best moments on Southpaw unsurprisingly...

West stood on stage for about a minute, apparently waiting for the mic problem to get fixed. When i...

Review: Jill Scott Remains True To Herself On ‘Woman’
When Jill Scott comes to mind, one characterizes her as being a cool, calm, and collected modern soul singer with the ability to show off a dynamic, gritty, and funky side. On her fifth studio album Woman, she remains true to those characterizations, never fumbling. Woman arguably hasn’t been the most aggressively promoted album by Scott, but has plenty to offer.

Woman kicks off with a bang with “Wild Cookie,” a spoken word piece in which Scott sends a message warning women not to sleep with any and everybody due to desperation. “Prepared,” the set’s first full length joint proceeds in ...
