One of my favourite things to happen in music this year is the reemergence of Lauryn Hill. After all her troubles with life in the spotlight it’s great to see her happy on stage after such a long absence.
Keep going to see Lauryn perform “Ooh La La La” at the New York leg of Rock the Bells and bring out some very special guests. Everyone just seems thrilled to see her performing again. Hopefully she’ll get back to making music again at some point in the near future.
BONUS: Lauryn Hill’s solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was a landmark in so many ways. The first hip-hop album to win Album of the Year at the Grammys, she became the first rapper to appear on Time magazine’s front cover and the album played a influential role in hip-hop becoming accepted by the mainstream. Here’s my favourite song from it, “To Zion”.
