Fugees

artist-Fugees Fugees is an American hip hop group that was very popular in the 90s. The story of the Fugees began in 1989 when two childhood friends Pris Michel and Wyclef Jean met Lauryn Hill. They were teenagers when they formed the group The Rap Translator. Forced to change their name, they renamed themselves Fugees in 1994. The same year, they released a first album entitled "Blunted on Reality" but it was not a success. Against all odds, their second album "The Score", released in 1996, was a huge commercial success. It sold more than 6 million copies in the United States, was certified six times platinum and won two Grammy Awards. It remains one of the best-selling hip-hop albums of all time. The album includes covers of "No woman no cry" and "Killing Me Softly With His Song" for which the band won the Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance. One year later, the band split up in a blaze of glory to discover new musical horizons. Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean went on to pursue brilliant solo careers while Pris Michel turned to comedy. However, seven years later they met again in a concert where Lauryn Hill sang a memorable, cappella-like "Killing Me Softly With His Song". In 2005 and 2006, the trio released two new singles, but the critics were not very positive. The fans blamed the band for the absence of the famous "Fugees sound". The group announced their final separation in 2007 for irreconcilable differences between Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean. Photo credit: CC BY-SA 4.0 ©kanyfug - Image cropped for format needs
