The Fugees were one of the biggest hip-hop influences of the 1990s. Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, and Pras Michel created the band together, giving it a name that referenced their Haitian origins. (The word 'fugee' was a shortened version of refugee, often used to refer to Haitian immigrants.) Despite their success, the band stopped working together after the release of their second album, 'The Score.' Like ABBA and Fleetwood Mac, interpersonal relationships within the group caused their downfall. A married Wyclef Jean had an affair with his bandmate, Lauryn Hill.
Relationships broke down after that and the band never released their third album or went on tour again. That is, until now! The Fugees have announced that they are finally reuniting to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of 'The Score.' They haven't toured together for 25 years or performed on stage together for 15 years. The tour will take them around the US, UK, Europe, and Africa at the end of 2021.
