The Fugees

hip-hop group

Hip-hop group that cleverly combines rap, R&B and reggae sounds. Their second album, The Score (1996) hit number one on the pop charts and sold over five million copies, fueled mainly by the popularity of their Grammy-winning, rhythm-infused version of Roberta Flack's classic “Killing Me Softly”. The Fugees are Lauryn Hill, Prakazrel “Pras ”Michel, and Wyclef “Clef ”Jean.
