Beyoncé may hold court in the seduction arena, Keyshia Cole might win you over with the force of her personality, and Mary J. Blige might be the undisputed champion of break-up songs, but no R&B singer compares to Jill Scott when it comes to the trenches of quotidian life. Alternately fragile ("Celibacy Blues"), funky ("Gimme"), mopey ("Insomnia"), piqued ("Gettin' in the Way"), and blithely unconstrained ("Golden"), she's both a feel-gooder and a profuse balladeer. Check her out in the Real Thing Tour with RaheemDevaughn, this Thursday and Friday, Feb. 7 and 8, at the Paramount Theatre (2025 Broadway, Oakland). 8 p.m., $42.50-$77.50.
