*Jill Scott’s lawsuits with Hidden Beach Records have finally been settled.

According to reports, the record company initiated the lawsuit against the artist for apparently failing to fulfill her release obligations. But instead of backing down, Scott countersued.

The details of the case were kept private, but the issues have been resolved.

So what does that mean for us? Possibly a new album. We shall see what the deal with be, but in the meantime, we know she’s going to be at the 2011 Essence Music Festival.
