AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Wyclef Jean

Artist:Wyclef Jean
Song:Gone Till November
Album:Playlist: The Very Best of Wyclef Jean

Wyclef Jean is probably best known as a member of the very popular group The Fugees. But he has also had success as a solo artist. Gone Till November is his only top ten pop hit. He was born Oct. 17, 1969 in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti but he grew up in Newark, NJ. He formed Tranzlator Crew in 1987 and they would become The Fugees. After two very successful albums, they weren't getting along and they split up. Jean immediately announced plans for a solo album. The Carnival was released June 1997. The album was very successful. It was certified 2XPlatinum. Gone Till November reached #7 on the Billboard Hot 100. It is Jean's biggest hit to date and you can get it on this budget comp. He recorded five albums for Columbia but none were as successful as The Carnival. So in recent years he released The Carnival Part 2 and Carnival Part 3 is scheduled for release this year. Jean has also been active as a producer of other artists. In 2010, he attempted to run for the president of Haiti but he was ruled ineligible because he didn't live there. He also acts occasionally. He had a recurring role on the ABC series Nashville. So Jean is still around but it's unlikely that he will be able to return to his success in the 90s. Here's the video for Gone Till November by Wyclef Jean.
