All Cried Out Redux

Album: The Light of the Sun (2011)
  • Scott's fourth studio album, The Light Of The Sun, finds the Neo-Soul singer veering into Hip-Hop. The transformation came about in 2010 when Scott was opening for the singer Maxwell, singing her R&B repertoire, but she realized her heart was in rap. "I started thinking about what kind of music I needed to hear before I went on stage. I think that was the catalyst. I need to hear Lupe Fiasco, Rick Ross and Mobb Deep," she told Reuters.
  • This song features hip-hop pioneer, Doug E. Fresh, who is among Scott's early favorites in the genre. Said the singer: "As a child of Hip-Hop, having recording anything with Doug E. Fresh is just surreal."
