Wyclef Jean was joined by Mary J. Blige and Pras at an intimate club show at S.O.B.’s in New York City on Thursday to showcase some of the new music from his upcoming album, “The Ecleftic.”
During his set, ’Clef was joined onstage by Mary J. Blige to perform “911,” a new track that will be included on “The Ecleftic.” Jean was also joined by fellow Fugee Pras, who was on hand to help out on the Fugees favorite “Ready Or Not.” After the song, ’Clef took the opportunity to poke fun at Pras for forgetting some of the words.
The audience also got a taste of several other new songs including “It Doesn’t Matter,” “Fugee This, Fugee That,” “Something About Mary,” and “However You Want It.” Wyclef also performed the socially-charged “Diallo,” a song that addresses the four NYPD officers responsible for the shooting death of 22-year-old West African immigrant Amadou Diallo in February 1998.
Maxi Priest joined his friend Wyclef to close the concert with a show-stopping
rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door.”
Wyclef Jean’s “The Ecleftic” will now hit stores on July 11.
