Lauryn Hill is evidently releasing a new album on January 28th, and that fact that this has gained almost no attention just goes to show how far this former queen has fallen.
Leaked versions of this album hit the internet but they are not worth downloading. In them, the full songs are Lauryn’s old hits, and new material is held to minute long clips. Here’s hoping that in the actual release, the old songs are clipped off at a minute each and the new material gets full blown.
I can’t say that I’m excited for this album, even if it comes out as a proper release. I’m not excited because it very well could be another in a series of all too public meltdowns that have occurred in the past few years.
Remember her MTV Unplugged record, where she said she liked that people thought she was crazy, because it meant they left her alone? I believed her then, but I don’t think there’s a person on the planet that would believe her now.
Here’s hoping January 28th changes all that.
