Lauryn Hill Returns To The Charts

If this isn’t an indication the world is ready for the return of Lauryn Hill, then I don’t know what is.

According to Billboard magazine, just days after “Repercussions,” a previously unreleased track from the singer leaked online, it has now debuted at #94 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts. This marks Lauryn’s first appearance on the chart in over 10 years.

The last time the West Orange, New Jersey, native charted as a lead artist on the tally was back in November 1999, when “Turn Your Lights Down Low,” featuring Bob Marley, peaked at No. 20. In 2006, the Method Man track “Say,” featuring Hill, charted at No. 10. The release of “Repercussions” came on the same day the former Fugees member performed at the FESPAD Festival in Kigali, Rwanda last month and fueled the rumors that Hill is finally working on a follow-up album. Lauryn Hill will be headlining the Rock The Bells tour next month. She will be joined by Snoop Dogg, A Tribe Called Quest and Slick Rick, among others.

  1. Congrats to her. I liked the song. Can’t wait for new music from her.

  2. yeeeeeessssssss L-BOGGIE the game Is NOTHING I mean NOTHING without you 🙂

  3. I’m not surprised, when you make genius music you can be gone 20 years and people will wait for you, People are thirsty for intellegent music again, especially with all the brain dead crap out now.

  4. Oh my goodness. I just listened to this. And she’s still got it!

    If Whitney Houston can come back to the mainstream music scene, Lauryn sure can too. She’s just so inspiring! Her voice sounds the same.

    Repercussions is amazing!

  5. It`s such a treat to see L-Boogie back!!!! I will definitely add her new album alongside ‘This Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill’ that I purchased back in the day. Music definitely needs someone like Lauryn to filter all the pollution from our pysche.

    She`s a deep/conscious sista with something to say. I don`t listen to the radio, as I`ve stated before, because it`s pretty much music that keeps you dumb down. I`ll definitely be checkin’ for L-Boogie for sure!!!

    Michael Jackson & The GOLDEN 80s 4ever!!! Long live The “MASTER SHOWMAN”!!!

    Peace, in the spirit of my “HERO” Brotha Malcolm X. Long live Brotha Malcolm!!!

  6. Sade, Monica & Now Lauren…Finally some good music to listen to. The youngins (and beyonce) better step up their game or be stepped over.

  7. Still not holding my breath for a full-out comeback. I’m taking a wait and see approach.

  8. As soon as I saw Lauryn’s face I just clicked on the pic. I didn’t even begin to read. I love Lauryn. She is a lyrical genius! Hope she actually brings out a full album this time. Either way, I ALWAYS buy any tracks of hers that are available.

  9. I saw her picture and went click. It didnt matter what the article was about. I waited years for her to get it together!

  10. @ Smooth Criminal
    (love the name btw lol)
    yeah I can’t listen to radio either…
    it literally makes my brain hurt! It’s maddening. But I keep me some CDs in rotation…lol I can’t get enough of Melanie Fiona right now. But I’m def anticipating a Lauryn Hill album. This is an exciting time for me cause I’m finally at an age and a point where I can really relate to her music. When Lauryn was in her hey day I was too young, naive, and a slave to pop culture to understand or appreciate her music and words. I did LOVE “Turn Your Lights Down Low” though, OMG!!! Really excited about this “comeback”! 🙂

  11. Love her… great to see her back. I just love the sound of her voice;can’t be imitaded by another.

  12. lauryn hill is a bad chick. i love the duet “turn your lights down low”, the way she was able to interpret and flow with bob marley infectious lyrics, was amazing. love her.

    the song Zion, she wrote for her daughter, beautiful. Selah, was beautiful.

    hill needs to come back, but why compare her to her peers, the woman is in her own atmosphere.

  13. @Me, you and I both. Between Lauryn Hill making new music and Dr. Dre’s Detox it’ll be another 10yrs before either happens.

  14. I totally agree with Lynn. I think we all need to exhale from tolerating the garbage we have been exposed to, because toxins are dangerous to our body. And get ready to re-embrace real music. The kind that helps us grow in positive ways.
    Ha! Let’s see these wannabees imitate Ms. Lauryn Hill. Her intelligence alone would blow today’s female performers off the planet.
