Feature'd Album Of The Week: Lauryn Hill 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill'
This week's 'Feature'd Album of the Week' showcases Lauryn Hill, and her debut solo album, 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill'. Released late in 1998, this album was the first project Hill created after separating from her former group, The Fugees. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill incorporates musical styles from R&B, hip hop, soul, and reggae. Its lyrics touch upon Hill's pregnancy and the turmoil within the Fugees, along with themes of love and God. The project debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 422,624 copies in its first week, which broke a record for first-week sales by a female artist.
