LAURYN HILL: Drop Her First Solo Song

Lauryn Hill will drop her first solo song in five years next month.

The former Fugees front woman recorded a new track for the Queen & Slim soundtrack. This is her first release since 2014’s “Black Rage (Sketch).” Still, she’s remained active, if somewhat inconsistent, as a touring artist. She’s also been sampled on hit songs by Drake (“Nice for What”) and Cardi B (“Be Honest.”)

Hot Takes:

  • Other artists on the soundtrack include Vince StaplesMegan Thee Stallion and Lil Baby.
  • The soundtrack was put together by director Melina Matsoukas, who has worked with Beyonce and directed episodes of Insecure.
  • It’s gonna be good to hear new music from one of our old favorites.
