Wyclef returns: Carnival II

31 08 2007

Wyclef Jean returns to Columbia Records with “The Carnival II: Memoirs of an Immigrant,” the artist’s first full-length album for the label since his third solo album, “Masquerade,” entered the Billboard Top 200 at #6 in June 2002. “The Carnival II: Memoirs of an Immigrant” is slated for release this autumn.

With “The Carnival II: Memoirs of an Immigrant,” his sixth full-length studio album, Wyclef Jean continues the autobiographical musical odyssey he began a decade ago with his 1997 triple-platinum debut solo album, “Wyclef Jean Presents The Carnival Featuring Refugee All-Stars” (aka “The Carnival”). Wyclef gave his fans their first taste of “The Carnival II” with the release of the album’s lead-in single, “Sweetest Girl (Dollar Bill),” featuring Akon, Lil’ Wayne and introducing Niia. Released in August, the single rapidly made its first Billboard chart appearance entering the Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart at #3. “Sweetest Girl (Dollar Bill)” is now available digitally. According to Wyclef, “The Carnival II” is “a continuation of ‘Gone Till November” (his 1997 Top 10 signature hit from “The Carnival”). I focus a lot on the songwriting.”

Wyclef Jean’s latest video “Sweetest Girl”

For his much anticipated new album, Wyclef has once again called upon his friends, showcasing his musical dexterity as he draws from an extraordinary and diverse roster of collaborating guest artists including Paul Simon (on “Fast Car”), Mary J. Blige, T.I., Norah Jones, Akon, Serj Tankian (of System Of A Down) (on “Trouble Again”), Lil’ Wayne, and Shakira, to name a few. Wyclef produced the entire album with his long-time production partner, Jerry “Wonda” Duplessis, with whom he has worked since the beginning of the Fugees.

Update on Wyclef: “The Carnival 2: Memoirs of an Immigrant”

31 05 2007

He hasn’t changed his name to Mr. Jean, but lately it seems Wyclef has been as far from the spotlight as his former Fugees mate Lauryn Hill.

“It’s been a minute for me,” he admitted to MTV News a couple of weeks ago on the set of T.I.’s “You Know What It Is” video (see “T.I. Getting Ahead Of His Selves With Second Clip From Alter-Ego LP”).

But ‘Clef recently connected with T.I. while he was in Atlanta and asked the “Bankhead” rapper to put him up in a studio while he was in town. Tip acquiesced and let ‘Clef set up shop at a studio he could use all by himself.

The result? Not only did he produce T.I.’s next single, but Wyclef also kick-started his next album, The Carnival 2: Memoirs of an Immigrant — the sequel to his debut, The Carnival — which is tentatively due in September. The new set follows 2003’s The Preacher’s Son and 2004’s international-flavored Welcome to Haiti: Creole 101.
