Lauryn Hill Working on Sophomore Album?
Lauryn Hill has yet to release a studio follow-up to her 1999 multi-platinum, Grammy-winning debut, ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,’ but there’s good news on the horizon. Following her gradual return to the spotlight earlier this year, which included the release of the new track ‘Reprecussions’ and headlining the 2010 Rock the Bells Festival, L Boogie is allegedly back in the studio working on her sophomore album, according to former Fugees member Pras.
“I heard they’re trying to drop it by the summertime,” he said in an interview with UsMagazine.com. “Let me tell you something. Somebody played me … something she worked on. Goosebumps. Like, 2015 Lauryn Hill.”
Additionally, Pras discussed the rumors surrounding the inner turmoil of the Fugees, explaining his role in the group. “I just made sure I kept the balance,” he said. “You had two personalities [in Lauryn and Wyclef Jean]; if I became the third personality, it would split everything apart.”
He also spoke on Lauryn’s mental state, claiming that she wasn’t actually crazy and that she was just coming to grips with her situation. “It wasn’t about her being crazy, it was just that she was like … ‘I gotta make sense of all of this,'” he explained. “I haven’t spoken to her about it; it’s me analyzing it.”
