After contributing to the soundtrack for Netflix’s Nina Simone documentary, Lauryn Hill is said to be working on a possible sequel to her 1998 classic album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
In a recent feature in The FADER, Jayson Jackson, producer and associate of Hill, reveals that she’s been inspired to create new music. “The Nina Simone experience pushed her hand in a way,” Jackson says.
He then spoke on Lauryn’s creative space these days. “I can say this, I know creating makes her very happy,” he says. “I couldn’t see her doing as much as she did [on the Simone project] in any state other than happiness.”
Another indicator comes from producer Phil Nicolo, who was a co-founder of her old label, Ruffhouse Records. “She is closer than ever to finishing the follow-up to Miseducation,” he says. “She wants to be right. She wants to be perfect.”
