Required Listening: Lauryn Hill – “Doo Wop” (MKL Remix)


It takes a brave soul to attempt remixing a song as iconic as Lauryn Hill‘s “Doo Wop,” but when you have an idea as good as the one producer MKL has delivered today, some risks must be taken.

Early today, I woke to find my inbox bursting with the usual array of press releases and ‘please feature us’ messages I have grown accustomed to discovering each morning. As a I dug through the latest messages promoting material I was unfamiliar with I stumbled across a quick note about a new remix from MKL that demanded my immediate attention. Some of you may be too young to remember when “Doo Wop” dominated the radio, but for several months it was the one song everyone was singing, and thanks to MKL the latest remix offers the kind of facelift needed to bring the track into the modern age. You can stream the remix below:

Listening to this remix made me remember the music video that accompanied the original recording. If you haven’t seen it, check it out:

I don’t know if we will ever hear another album like The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, but I am confident in Ms. Hill’s ability to blow us away again whenever her next record drops. Follow UTG on Twitter for updates.
