The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is the debut solo album by American singer and rapper Lauryn Hill founding member of The Fugees. It was released on August 25, 1998, by Ruffhouse Records and Columbia Records. Primarily a neo soul album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill incorporates musical styles from R&B, hip hop, soul, and reggae. Its lyrics touch upon Hill’s pregnancy and the turmoil within the Fugees, along with themes of love and God.

The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 422,624 copies in its first week, which broke a record for first-week sales by a female artist. It produced three hit singles: ‘Doo Wop (That Thing)’, ‘Ex-Factor’, and ‘Everything Is Everything’. Its lead single ‘Doo Wop (That Thing)’ peaked at number one in the US. The album’s success propelled Hill to international superstardom, and at the 41st Annual Grammy Awards, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill earned 10 nominations, winning five awards, making Hill the first woman to receive that many nominations and awards in one night. By 2013, it had sold over 8 million copies in the US and over 19 million copies worldwide.
