Wyclef Jean Returns With Heavenly New Song "Demons Enjoy" [PREMIERE]
Wyclef Jean returns with a brand new track.
Last November, the legend announced he’d be releasing a new album, Wyclef goes Back to School, slated for release in March.
The album—which features collaborations with students from Howard, Temple, UCLA, USC, NYU, UMass Lowell, and more— came to form during his 2018 Carnival Tour, after he visited various colleges around the U.S.
Following the release of the project’s first single, “Baba” feat. Kofi Black and Sejahari, “Demons Enjoy” sees Wyclef join forces with singers Moira Mack and Jeremy Torres for a gleamy look at heaven and hell and the soul-searching in between.
“As some of my friends take their lives, others die from a stray bullet, and some can’t take the mental pressures of life, I am once again inspired to write a song that might just prevent another demon to enjoy,” Wyclef told Okayplayer.
“For me, music has always been more of an independent process than a collaborative one,” Mack told Okayplayer But I loved watching this song come together as the intersection of three different perspectives. We all poured in a little of our own pains which made the result more reflective of the dire state of the world. Everyone is dealing with their personal, separate hell. But in a way, that is unifying.”
And with the new album on the way, Netflix has also signed on to make an animated feature film inspired by Wyclef’s childhood in Haiti.
Until then, listen to “Demons Enjoy” below.
