Ever so often Jill Scott’s spoken word roots find their way into her songs or songwriting. That’s exactly the case for “Quick,” a song about a relationship ending too soon. We have an exclusive clip of her performance of “Quick” on tonight’s VH1 Storytellers: Jill Scott. Like its title, the song moves and ends quickly. But the fast pace doesn’t take away from the lyrical content. Due to its fast tempo we’re almost certain this is one of the happiest songs about an ending relationship.
“It was so, quick/The way that it happened/Quick, the way that you left me/Quick, can’t believe it’s over, can’t believe it’s over now/I loved you/I really loved you/Can’t believe that’s its over/Can’t believe that we would ever split,” Jill sings in a very 50s doo-wop sound. Her notes are flawless as they carry every note to perfection. “Quick” is from Jill’s fourth studio album The Light of the Sun . Now if only healing a heart could be so…quick. Catch her full performance tonight at 11 PM ET/PT on VH1 Storytellers.
