Lauryn Hill, who’s now performing under the name Ms. Lauryn Hill, played her first shows since the end of her three-month prison stint for tax fraud the night before Thanksgiving at New York’s Bowery Ballroom. Now professional quality video has surfaced of Hill and her band grooving through a reggae-inflected version of The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill stunner “Ex-Factor.” Sometimes I feel like no one loves that song more than me and no one ever will, so maybe that’s why this new rendition isn’t working for me. Maybe you’ll dig it, though; find out below.
