Lauryn Hill Joined By Wyclef For Mini Fugees Reunion During Coachella Set By Son YG Marley

It was a family affair on Sunday (April 14) at Coachella when Lauryn Hill surprised attendees at her son YG Marley’s afternoon set with a run through a few of her solo classics, as well as an unexpected get-together with Fugees bandmate Wyclef for a run through their group’s beloved hits.

Wearing an orange-and-black suit and rocking white beads in her hair, Hill walked out on stage and hugged her second-born son before dropping into The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill solo hit “Ex-Factor,” with Marley running around the stage adding ad-libs throughout.

Hill continued with a fierce dancehall-spiked performance of her debut album’s “Lost Ones,” followed by an on-stage reunion with her Fugees bandmate Wyclef Jean for collaborations on their group’s beloved hits, including “Killing Me Softly,” “Ready or Not” and “Fu-Gee-La”; their third Fugees mate, Pras, did not make an appearance, though YG did justice to his parts while filling in on “Ready or Not.” The family also paid tribute to YG’s late grandfather, reggae superstar Bob Marley, with bits of “One Love” and “Exodus.”

It was just one of many surprise cameos from Sunday’s star-studded lineup, which also had headliner Doja Cat roping A$AP Rocky, 21 Savage and Teezo Touchdown in for her festival-wrapping set, Will Smith making a surprise appearance during J Balvin’s performance and Justin Bieber hitting the stage with Tems and Wizkid for “Essence.” In addition, Bebe Rexha was joined by David Guetta for their dance smash “I’m Good (Blue),” DJ Snake’s set included pop-ins from Robin S. and Peso Pluma and Lil Yachty tapped indie rocker Mac DeMarco.
