The label's founder, Steve Mc Keever, claimed that he helped launch Scott's career and nurtured her into a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, but was unceremoniously dumped in October after a 10-year plus relationship. To offset the damages, Hidden Beach planned to release several compilation albums consisting of previously unreleased material by Scott.
The first album in this series was The Original Jill Scott from the Vault, Vol. Previously titled Just Before Dawn, the album was asked to be paused by Scott so that fans would not get confused with the new material she was releasing entitled The Light of the Sun being released under a distribution deal that Scott and Warner Brothers signed in early 2011.
The collaboration resulted in a co-writing credit for Scott on the song, "You Got Me".
In 2000, Erykah Badu and the Roots won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for "You Got Me", and Scott debuted as an artist during a Roots live show, singing as original artist/singer of the song. She experienced some notice and chart success with the single "A Long Walk", eventually earning a Grammy nomination in early 2003 for Best Female Vocal Performance.
The single features the rapper Eve and R&B trio The A-Group. The album's official debut single was "So in Love" featuring Anthony Hamilton.
It was released in April and debuted at #43 on the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, Scott's highest debut on that chart.
Interspersed between the dozen songs previewed on the sampler was a personal explanation from Jill for the inspiration behind some of her songs.
In 2008, Scott released her second live album, Live in Paris , which consists of 8 songs recorded during her set list of the "Big Beautiful Tour" in Europe.
Scott promoted the album with several tactics including The Light of the Sundays, several online Essence interviews, and releasing the album as an i Tunes LP, giving fans exclusive photos and videos.
It features collaborations from Anthony Hamilton, Eve, Doug E Fresh, and Paul Wall.
