Lauryn Hill Details
Lauryn Hill was born into a musical family, her father sang and performed at local nightclubs and weddings, her mother played the piano and they had hundreds of records in the house. Hill was very active in high school, participating on sports teams and taking advanced placement classes. Freshman year of high school, her and a few classmates started a group and performed in local showcases and high school talent shows.
In 1991 Hill began her acting career, appearing in an unsuccessful Off-Broadway show, a soap opera, and later in Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit. After graduating high school in 1993, Hill and her classmates renamed their group the Fugees and was signed to Columbia/Ruffhouse Records. Their debut album was a flop but their following, The Score peaked at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and stayed top 10 for over six months, selling 17 million copies worldwide. The album won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. Lauryn Hill had now become a household name.
The Fugees broke up in 1996 after issues arose between Hill and former boyfriend, Wyclef Jean. After the birth of her first child with Bob Marley’s son Rohan, Hill recorded her solo record The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. When the album dropped in August 1998, Hill received rave reviews, noting Hill’s unique blend of R&B, Hip-Hop, doo-wop, pop, and reggae. The album topped the Billboard 200 for four weeks and the Billboard R&B Albums chart for six. It sold over 12 million copies worldwide. Shortly after the album was released, Hill had her second child with Marley.
Leading up to the 1999 Grammy Awards, Hill became the first woman to be nominated in ten categories in a single year. During the ceremony she broke another record by becoming the first woman to win five times in one night, taking home awards for Album of the Year, Best R&B Album, Best R&B Song, Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, and Best New Artist.
After stepping so prominently into the public eye, appearing on various magazine covers and being praised for her talent and looks, Hill dropped out of the public eye in 2000. She became overwhelmed by the fame and hated the attention. The following year, she released new material to a small crowd and it was taped for an MTV Unplugged special, later releasing the tracks on the MTV Unplugged No. 2.0. Unlike her previous album, this one was met with mixed criticisms. Some praised the album as fascinating, while Rolling Stone called it a “public breakdown”.
Throughout the early 2000s Hill worked on various projects but nothing ever came to fruition. In 2004 the Fugees reunited at Dave Chappelle’s Block Party and again the following year at the BET Awards. The group embarked on a reunion tour that had to be shut down quickly due to resurfaced tensions, leading Hill to tour on her own, which was highly unsuccessful. In 2007 Hill culminated her old projects and released Ms. Hill which never gained traction.
In 2010, Hill performed at a few shows in New Zealand and Australia and from that released an unofficial compilation album. After appearing at the Harmony Festival in California her song “Repercussions” was leaked and peaked at No. 83 on the Billboard R&B charts- her first Billboard chart appearance since 1999. She continued to perform at festivals and toured with her band through 2012.
Hill faced various obstacles from 2013 on, including an arrest and media attention for her erratic behavior. She appeared in various projects, narrating for the documentary Concerning Violence and contributing six songs for the soundtrack for What Happened, Miss Simone?. In 2016 Hill hosted the inaugural Diaspora Calling! Festival, which showcased efforts of musicians and artists from around the African Diaspora. Despite hardships, it is clear that Lauryn Hill has raw talent. Her shows are electric and unique, just like her.
