Taking cues from her band, the Fugees, 23-year old Lauryn Hill bust onto the music scene as a solo artist with the release of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill in 1998.

The centerpiece of the record is “Doo Wop (That Thing),” a cut that exemplified the album’s genre-spanning mix of gospel-like choirs, rapped verses and classic R&B horn licks. It was the first single from the set and topped the charts in both the US and the UK.

Five Grammys went to Hill for this 16-song set, including two for the aforementioned “Doo Wop (That Thing)” plus nods for Album of the Year and Best R&B album.

Released in August 1988 by Ruffhouse, Miseducation has sold more than 8 million copies.
