Hear Lauryn Hill’s ‘I’ve Got Life,’ From Forthcoming Nina Simone Tribute Album
It's out on July 10 via RCA
Update: Lauryn Hill has shared the full version of her “I’ve Got Life” cover. Hear it here.
Shortly after sharing her cover of Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good,” Ms. Lauryn Hill has unveiled part of another cut from RCA’s forthcoming Nina Simone tribute album, Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone. Titled “I’ve Got Life,” the new song is a rap that comes layered over a snippet from the 1968 Simone song by (almost) the same name, “Ain’t Got No/I’ve Got Life”.
Other guests on the album — which comes in conjunction with Netflix’s soon-to-be-released documentary What Happened, Miss Simone? — will include names like Mary J. Blige, Common, Usher, Gregory Porter, Jazmine Sullivan, and Nina Simone’s daughter, Lisa Simone. Grab Nina Revisited on July 10, and catch What Happened, Miss Simone? on Netflix on June 26.
