The music that Wyclef Jean has written, performed, and produced — both as a solo superstar and as founder and guiding member of the Fugees — has been a consistently powerful, pop cultural force for over two decades. In 1996, the Fugees released their monumental album The Score. Since then, Wyclef has released eight albums as a solo artist, that have sold nearly nine million copies worldwide, including his 1997 debut The Carnival and 2000’s The Eclectic: 2 Sides II a Book. In March 2019 Wyclef released Wyclef Goes Back to School, a collaboration with students he met while touring the United States and visiting colleges across the country, and features singles “Demons Enjoy,” “Baba” and “Faded Butterfly”, while his latest song “Dear Future Self (Hands Up)”, with Fall Out Boy, premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live! In September 2019, Netflix announced the production of an untitled animated project based on the real life story of Wyclef’s childhood in Haiti. In his most recent project, Wyclef hosts RunThatBack, a one of a kind show for music lovers of any type, where Wyclef interviews heavy hitters from all walks of life, from music, to sports, to politics and beyond. You never know what you’ll learn about the world or music from Clef, but you definitely won’t find it anywhere else. Guaranteed to make you RunThatBack
