The track will be featured on J’ouvert, Wyclef’s highly anticipated new EP that will be available digitally onNovember 18th. J’ouvert features Young Thug, Walk The Moon and others, and the title refers to the official beginning of Carnival.
Late last month, World Star Hip Hop debuted the video for Hendrix. The video is the first part of a 12-minute short film starring actors Michael K. Williams (The Wire, The Night Of), Tasha Smith (Empire) as well as newcomer, T.J. Riley, which will be released soon. The track, Hendrix, will also be featured on J’ouvert.
J’ouvert is a precursor to Wyclef’s forthcoming full-length album aptly titled, Carnival III: Road To Clefication, dropping next summer on the 20th anniversary of Wyclef’s critically acclaimed debut, The Carnival. The LP has already created quite a buzz with confirmed appearances from Young Thug, Walk The Moon, Afrojack, Emeli Sandé and multiplatinum DJ/recording artist, Avicii.
