“My Carnival albums have always been about celebrating music culture from all parts of the world and Carnival III is no different,” says Wyclef. “It’s outside the box. There’s genre-bending. There’s new talent on there. Carnival III is more than just an album. It’s a celebration of what I love about music: discovery, diversity and artistry for art’s sake… It’s about putting music together that will outlive me and live on for generations to come that is full of emotion, vibration and fun. Get ready.”

In 2016, Wyclef was back yet again with another hit, “Hendrix,” the first single off of his EP, J’Ouvert. “Hendrix” garnered over 20 million streams worldwide. Wyclef’s influence on the new generation is evident with the creative connection with Young Thug, who named a track on mixtape, JEFFERY, “Wyclef Jean.” The two musicians teamed up to record the Caribbean-inspired “I Swear,” the third single off of J’Ouvert.

As big a comeback as “Hendrix” and “I Swear” have proven to be, one should not count on Fall and Rise of a Refugee as being an entire album full of mid-tempo tracks. “Do I have anything for the clubs?” he asks. “You’re talking to The Carnival Man! I’ve done the biggest dance records of all time! I plan to put them on the dancefloor more so than ever. I know people want that dancefloor bounce from me — that thing.”

The music that Wyclef Jean has written, performed, and produced — both as a solo superstar and as founder and guiding member of the Fugees — has been a consistently powerful, pop cultural force for over two decades. In 1996, the Fugees released their monumental album The Score. As a solo artist, he has released six albums that have sold nearly nine million copies worldwide, including his 1997 debut The Carnival and 2000’s aptly titled The Eclectic: 2 Sides II a Book.
