Call Ms. Lauryn Hill the mother of hip-hop invention; with her 1998 solo debut The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, the Fugees’ most vocal member not only established herself as creative force on her own, but also broke new ground by successfully integrating rap, soul, reggae, and R&B into her own sound.

Ms. Lauryn Hill’s first solo effort, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (1998), established her as a major talent in her own right. The album sold more than 12 million copies and earned the singer-songwriter five Grammys, three American Music Awards, a Billboard Award, a Soul Train Award and an MTV Music Award.

After an extended hiatus, Hill returned in 2002 with MTV Unplugged No. 2.0, a recording of her two-hour acoustic performance on the popular series MTV Unplugged. In October 2005, Hill performed two songs at the Take Back TV concert launching Al Gore’s CurrentTV. An unofficial compilation of her recent material appeared under the title Khulani Phase (2010).

Jessie Ware – Tough Love (Album Stream)

Jessie Ware releases a preview of her second album Tough Love. The track is available for streaming and comes featuring 11-tracks including production from BenZel (Benny Blanco and Two Inch Punch) with additional benefits from Miguel, Ed Sheeran, James Ford, Dev Hynes plus more.

“There aren’t really too many new faces, this time round. It might look like that, but it’s just the same lot from the last album, really, and a few extra friends. The main new collaborator, I guess, is BenZel; they kind of exec’d half the album, but I’ve known both of them, individually, for years. If there is one voice to the record, it has to come from me; I think I’ve managed it, too, because I really had grown in confidence. I was able to put my foot down a little bit more, and just say “that’s what I want.” I know if it sits right with me.”

For a full listen of Tough Love you can head over to NPR or Spotify.

Highsnobiety Op-ed: Have Artists Like Radiohead & Beyoncé Changed Music Marketing?

Highsnobiety today takes a close look at the music industry and if there is a sea change occurring with artists like Beyoncé and Radiohead leading the charge.

With more and more artists abandoning all forms of marketing and deciding to drop their albums unannounced, we decided to explore the risks and the gains for all those who have taken the plunge.


Nowadays, the phrase “pulling a Beyoncé” has become synonymous with the act of releasing an album via an unexpected or unconventional strategy. As the standard model of releasing a record begins to show its age and major labels become less and less profitable, recording artists are looking for ways to bring their work to market entirely by themselves. This often means no announcements, no teasers, no trailers – no marketing campaign whatsoever.

JMSN – Street Sweeper (Video)

JMSN’s “Street Sweeper” is now officially available in video form. The visual for “Street Sweeper” is an intentionally minimal affair, with the Michigan polymath setting out to “keep it simple” as to not take away from the actual song. He labels it more of a “performance video,” and allows the entire visual to unfold like an impressives live showcase would. In a statement about the video, JMSN says the following regarding his new video:

“This video is bare and raw, for the same reason the vocals and instruments are dry and raw. Life is raw. Life is unkind. Life is not black and white. The quicker we strip away the bullsh*t. The quicker we can live now. The focus should never be taken away from that. If it is, then you’re missing the whole point of the song. We need to engage in the story. Therefore, engage in each other and constantly keep learning about one another.”
