Fresh from the Fridge: Ronald Isley feat Lauryn Hill- Close To You (single)

You know you got mad juice when you can get Lauryn Hill featured on a track these days and Mr. Bigs does just that with this classic cover of Burt Bacharach’s tender ballad “(They Long to Be) Close to You.” I’ve got this bad boy on repeat right now! Super hot take on the cover and one hell of a colab.

Expect to see this track on Ronald’s upcoming album Mr. I (due Nov. 30).

Ms. Hill Returns

The thing about great artist, they seem to be weird or go crazy in there lifetime. You can say what you want, but it has to be something. With there problems or issues, they seem to forget to create new music. So anytime Whitney, D’Angelo or Lauryn Hill drop’s something new, that song seems to create hype for what the future can and should hold.

Lauryn has been on a up and down ride since her classic cd, The Miseducation. Most of her ride has been down, in the publics eyes. Her MTV unplugged project was panned by many. It was hard for people to except her going this sort of folk route. We were use to her giving us so much soul. To be honest, her unplugged disc was not bad.

Recently a few videos have surfaced with Lauryn sounding like the Fugees/Miseducation days. And the hype of her returning to top form is among us again. I can’t lie, I’m all in. Throw in the fact she is on tour doing the whole Miseducation album, Lauryn is on the comeback.

Today I found a new song of Lauryn’s. At the time, the only details we have is that the song is unreleased. I’m not sure if it is new or something that was a album throwaway. Whatever it is, I’m happy. It is good to hear Lauryn in all her glory, the way we remember her. Take a listen to this new song and comment. While you are at it, if you have not seen it yet, take a look at her performing Lost Ones a couple months ago.

Khulami Phase, Lauryn Hill’s Unreleased album?

Lauryn Hill

Ok, This really isn’t an album. It’s collection of songs that, many I haven’t heard. Some may be from that album that was never released in 2004, but we have no way of knowing. If you’re asking about that cover art, it was created by GlueKit, by the request of Vibe Magazine for an article. The article was about 51 Albums that never Were. So, what’s the history behind the Khulami Phase album?  All I know is that, she was working on it during 2004, and to be released in December of that year.  That is also the same time that they spoke of a Fugee Reunion.  I’m stilling hoping for a 3rd labum to be released by Ms. Lauryn, and a Fugee’s Reunion.  You can download the album here.
