From The Vault: Fugees – ‘Killing Me Softly’

Published: Sunday 13th Jul 2008 by Sam
Our From The Vault feature, this week, journeys back to 1996 with the Fugees smash hit ‘Killing Me Softly’. One of the most promising, critically acclaimed (and arguably, influential) groups to emerge in the 90’s, the then fresh faced trio consisting of Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel served up some of that eras defining Hip-Hop/R&B cuts such as ‘Ready or Not’, ‘Fu-Gee-La’ and this, their biggest hit, ‘Killing Me Softly’. Still as impacting today as it was upon its release, the Fugees ‘Killing Me Softly’, no doubt will go down in history:

Having parted ways in 1997, it’s s shame we never got to see what could have become of the talented trio.
