New Music by Lauryn Hill: “Repercussions”

No one seems to know where “Repercussions” came from, but we’re happy to hear some newly surfaced music from the talented Lauryn Hill. Rumors of a comeback have been circulating since Ms. Hill’s NPR interview and addition to the Rock the Bells line-up, which will put the former Fugees member back in the spotlight after a decade of avoiding it. Still don’t know if there’s a new album in the works, but we’ll take what we can get from the enigmatic icon and hope there’s more to come.

Yvette Rovira: “Let’s Go Out Tonight” + MP3

“Let’s Go Out Tonight” has a backing of funk guitar, horns, and a rolling drumbeat behind Yvette Rovira’s powerful vocals, creating the upbeat dance tune of the album that will start off any night with a burst of energy. The track is a musical and emotional contrast to the rest of the album, which draws on heartfelt, poignant lyrics dealing with love, ambition and social responsibility.

Still, it’s Friday and you might see Yvette Out Tonight, maybe performing with the The Lifted Crew. After the jump, watch her interview with Fiona Bloom’s Efficacy Video Series.
