Yes, you read the headline correctly, Lauryn Hill is going on tour! The iconic artist just announced that she’ll be hitting stages around the world in honor of the 20th anniversary of her debut album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.”
According to Variety, the 6-time-Grammy-winner released a statement that reads:
“This album chronicled an intimate piece of my young existence. It was the summation of most, if not all, of my most hopeful and positive emotions experienced to that date. I Loved and believed deeply in my community’s ability to both Love and heal itself provided it received the right amount of support and encouragement. Our world today, both complex and changing, is in need of the balance between moral fortitude and cathartic expression. I hope the Love and energy that permeated this work can continue to inspire change with Love and optimism at the helm.”
Twitter is already going crazy!

Just last year, the artist went on tour with Queens’ own Nas. Apparently during the tour, there were times where Hill would show up late or not at all. Twitter users didn’t hesitate to bring up those instances:
Wasn’t Lauryn Hill not showing up to some shows her last tour? Why the hell would she think people would trust her to buy tickets this time around?
