Lauryn Hill Delivers Emotional Performance of ‘Rebel/I Find It Hard to Say’ on ‘Charlie Rose’
The remixed version of the song was recently re-released after it initially appeared on her MTV Unplugged album back in 2002. The song is especially timely given the tense racial climate of current America.
“I find it hard to say that everything is alright,” she sings. “Don’t look at me that way, like everything is alright / ‘Cause my own eyes can see through all your false pretenses / What you fail to see is all the consequences.”
Hill's emotional performance comes after Nicki Minaj literally fell on her knees in homage to her during TIDAL X: 1015, which also saw Hill perform. Check out her rousing performance of the song above.
