Exclaim! - - TIMELINE -

This solo al­bum, re­leased shortly af­ter The Score, sold over five mil­lion copies and fea­tures “Gone Till Novem­ber,” a quin­tes­sen­tial Wyclef Jean sin­gle. A per­fect fu­sion of rap, reg­gae, Son Cubano, pop, soul and Haitian mu­sic, with a sin­grap for­mula that Wyclef honed and now serves as the tem­plate for many like-minded artists. It was ranked as one of the “100 Best Al­bums of the Nineties” by Rolling Stone.
