New Music: Jill Scott f/ Paul Wall – ‘So Gone (What My Mind Says)’

Jill Scott and Paul Wall

Jill Scott gives into temptation on “So Gone (What My Mind Says),” a racy collaboration with Paul Wall from her new album The Light of the Sun, in stores Tuesday. The Philly songstress enlists the adult services of Diamond Chip Dick—enter Paul Wall—when she’s feeling lonely. After a steamy night of passion, she’s hooked.

“It’s a song about a girl who is being celibate because she’s respecting herself and trying to do something completely different. In the meantime, she’s still a boss and she could use a little [sex],” explains Scott. “She gets a phone call from her girlfriend who says, ‘Why don’t you call Diamond Chip Dick?’ Diamond Chip Dick is a service where they come and please you and take the trash out when they leave. But it’s too good. She’s gotten Dickmatized. Paul Wall plays the gentleman from the Diamond Chip Dick company. He basically says what he does that’s got her sprung.”
