Of the tour Ms. Hill notes, “This album chronicled an intimate piece of my young existence. It was the summation of most, if not all, of my most hopeful and positive emotions experienced to that date. I Loved and believed deeply in my community’s ability to both Love and heal itself provided it received the right amount of support and encouragement. Our world today, both complex and changing, is in need of the balance between moral fortitude and cathartic expression. I hope the Love and energy that permeated this work can continue to inspire change with Love and optimism at the helm.”

Lauryn Hill’s “Ex-Factor” may have gotten a 2018 update from both Drake and Cardi B, but The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill single is a stone-cold classic that was a stellar performer back when it first climbed the Billboard charts.

“Ex-Factor” was one of six hits from Miseducation that charted on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The track peaked at No. 7 on the tally dated March 13, 1999, and spent 31 weeks on the list — the longest run of any of the album’s tunes.

NPR has compiled a list of what it considers The 150 Greatest Albums Made By Women, from 1964 to the present. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is #2 on the list. NPR writes:

The Fugees struck gold in the late 1990s with albums like The Score, a feat that also made their resident wordsmith, Lauryn Hill, a household name. But when Hill went out on her own two years later and dropped her debut, the neo-soul masterpiece The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, she schooled everyone all over again in new and necessary ways. …the album, rife with Hill’s biting rhymes and sharp turns of phrase, is a wonder from start to finish.
