I am an artist, musician, composer, producer, and businessman - what some would call a “Jack of All Trades!” Because of my constant curiosity and passion for creating, I have been fortunate to write and produce some of the most exciting music of the last 30 years. Starting my career as a proud member of The Fugees, with the release of The Score in the 1990s to great success, I was able to launch a solo career that included all of my inspirations and musical influences as a songwriter, producer, and performer, with hit songs like “Sweetest Girl’ and “Gone Til November.” Some of my favorite projects came out of collaborations with my heroes, including “Hips Don’t Lie” with Shakira, “Maria, Maria” with Carlos Santana, and “My Love is Your Love” with the late, great Whitney Houston. On my own, I have released six studio albums, but the collaborations never stopped! In 2014 I worked with Carlos Santana again along with the legend Avicii and incredible singer-songwriter Alexandre Pires to write the anthem for the World Cup that year. I am always looking for new up-and-coming talent. One of my favorite songs to work on recently was “Kanye West” with Young Thug, who even made a song called “Wyclef Jean,” which showed me how my music has impacted this next generation. Inspired by these brilliant kids, I decided to make an album with them! In 2018, I toured the US and chose college students to feature on my latest album, “Wyclef Goes Back to School, Vol 1.” Now, I continue to be inspired wherever I go. Everyday I am always writing and creating new music. I am also working on a new show, “Run That Back,” where I have a conversation with people from all walks of life including people like Clive Davis, Lena Waithe, and will.i.am. I am also working on a new music tech app called “Sodo Mood Lab” and scoring my upcoming Netflix movie. You never know what I’ll be doing next! Love to all my people!
