Lauryn Hill is making history.
Over two decades since ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’ was released, the landmark album has been certified 10x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America RIAA, becoming the first female hip-hop album to earn a Diamond award.
Released on August 25, 1998, Hill’s solo debut opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and spawned standouts like “Ex-Factor,” “To Zion,” and “Doo Wop” with collaborators including John Legend, D’Angelo, and Mary J. Blige.
Hill wrote, produced, and arranged the critically-acclaimed project, which won five Grammys.
The Miseducation is regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time.
In 2015, it was added to the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry, while Rolling Stone ranked it No. 10 on its list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
