Wyclef Jean’s newest music video, for his track ‘What Happened To Love’, precedes his forthcoming album, ‘Carnival III: The Fall And Rise Of A Refugee’, set for release on September 15.
The video, featuring LunchMoney Lewis and The Knocks, has cracked 2 million views on YouTube, and has received praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, XXL, and UPROXX, who had the video premiere.
In the upbeat track, with the great refrain ‘What happened to love…girl this is good as it always was” Wyclef is getting the band together – but stresses he’s not talking about the Fugees – he’s talking about his fictitious band, Carnival.
‘Carnival III’ celebrates the 20th anniversary of Wyclef Jean’s debut album, ‘The Carnival’, and of the musicians who in that time have taken inspiration from his music. Such is the vibe about its release, Billboard has named it as one of the 25 Most Anticipated Albums of this Autumn.
‘What Happened To Love’ is an absolute bop, with Wyclef playing his great blend of R&B and hip hop, in a sometimes quite funny video where he is in various guises as every member of his “band”. There’s also some fantastic dance moves, which although clearly choreographed, nonetheless feel spontaneous. Shot on location in San Juan, Puerto Rico, you’ll be getting up and dancing and feeling like a part of Wyclef’s dance party.
‘Carnival III: The Fall And Rise Of A Refugee’ is available to preorder here. Find Wyclef Jean online on his official website, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
