New Video: Lauryn Hill ‘Consumerism’ (Lyric)

It’s safe to say that Lauryn Hill isn’t exactly making the same kind of music that she became famous for. On the one hand, it’s cool to see an artist take liberties with their art and use it to address destructive issues in our society. On the other hand, “Consumerism” lacks that beautiful voice that we fell in love with Lauryn for. Watch the lyric video for Lauryn’s new song, which dropped on the eve of her release from prison, and see if you can get jiggy with this new direction of her music. —Max Weinstein
