Lauryn Hill has unleashed ‘Guarding The Gates’ her first solo song in five years.

The track is the critically acclaimed singer’s contribution to the newly released ‘Queen & Slim’ movie soundtrack – which also features the likes of Megan Thee Stallion and Burna Boy.

Performed in earnest over the last four years, today marks the first time a studio version of the mid-tempo has been poured onto streaming and retail platforms.

With fresh material promised from the ever-elusive songstress, will ‘Guarding’ further whet appetites for more from Ms. Hill?

    She still sounds beautiful and the soulfulness along with the lyrical content is amazing. I don’t care what anyone says, she gonna drop something when the time is right. With a new decade around the corner its not too late. Unlike her older peers people are still waiting for n album and attending her shows despite lateness. God has her covered

  6. Clarkson November 15, 2019

    How many come backs is she gonna have?

    This is her 5th comeback.
    Nobody checking for u.

    The Miseducation album has aged horribly.

    Listening to the album today, the album sounds so judgemental and preachy and she’s slùt shaming people .

    • D November 15, 2019

      The way these female AND male wh0res are set up today, people need to be slutshamed. The Miseducation still sounds great, man. Idk what you’re talking about.

    • FAF November 15, 2019

      But she’s not doing these comebacks this is the industry calling it that

      She’s not releasing new music besides soundtrack shitsince 2005

      This song was made in 2005 she’s just recorded a studio version

    • Kurtz November 16, 2019

      Nah that album is still one of the best albums of all time. In terms of impact sales and content. Her writing vocals and raps are amazing on that album and it’s ages great it’s just you ??‍♂️

    Lauryn still knows how to pack a soulful punch. But her personal situations are what has plagued her throughout the years. Hopefully with personal issues aside she can get back into a great creative space and give her supporters a complete project that they can relate to and enjoy.
