Ms. Hill was originally only scheduled to record two songs on the complication but ended up recording six while working alongside producer Robert Glasper.

 

During an interview with Rolling Stone Lauryn stated;-

 

“Because I fed on this music, both hers and lovers like her, like my basic food, I believed I always had a right to have a voice. Her example is clearly a form of sustenance to a generation needing to find theirs. What a gift.”

 

We are glad to see Ms. Hill singing in the studio again. Her musical talent still amazes music lovers.
