"Jill Scott is a great new artist that has talents beyond that of most singers. Jill Scott sings about real life stories that actually have serious meaning, and I have never really liked that in an artist because I like simple fun songs, but I think Jill Scott is really unique. Jill Scott not only talented in singing but she also is a great writer, and wrote her songs. Jill Scott may seam like the type of artist that wouldn't release remixes, but the ones she realeased are fabulous.Track Listing:1.) Gettin' In The Way - Original Version (3:56) = This is the hot original version, I like this song because it has so much meaning to it.2.) Gettin' In The Way - (MJ Cole Remix) (6:03) = This remix is just not long enough, if you are thinking this version is like that of the causual original than think again. This remix is somewhat of a dance remix with R&B flares, you can not hate on this remix, this remix is by far my favorite.3.) Gettin' In The Way - (Live) (4:16) = This live version is just as good as that of the original recorded version. The beat is changed a lot from the original version but still sound great. The beat is more jazzy like, but I think that is great for different crouds.4.) Gettin' In The Way - (Video) (3:28) = This is the great video were you get to see Jill tell this girl off because that girl wants her man. The video comes in different formats, so it should be compatable with most computers.Jill Scott's music is so great that I think she deserved to win a grammy, but she didn't but there is always next year. Check this out, it comes with the video, a remix, a live version, it comes with the works, you can't lose out."
Thank you! Another intellegent and positive female voice.

"Jill Scott has quickly become one of my favorate artist. Her songs are unlike most of the main streem artist. Her lyrics seems to be spiritually, emotionally and mentally centered. A quality that seems to be lacking in the music industry today. We are forced to listen to songs that lack personal respect and respect for our fellow man each time we turn on the radio these days. As her song "you're getting in my way" lyrics attemps to defuse issues between women regarding their place in a man's life, to me in some ways negate what's now typical songs about women taking other women's men and the negitivity those types of songs evoke. I am looking forward to more of Jill scott's work."
