New Music: Wyclef Jean - 'If I Was President 2016'

  /  10.14.2016

In the midst of the U.S. presidential election, Wyclef Jean delivers “If I Was President 2016.”

Remixing his politically-charged 2008 single, ‘Clef sings about the current political climate. “A man said he’s gonna build a wall,” he sings. “And have Mexico pay for it all / And there’s a riot every week.”

“If I Was President 2016” is slated to appear on the former Fugees forthcoming EP J’ouvert, which is due Nov. 18. J’ouvert, which is set to feature Young Thug, is actually just a warm-up ahead of Carnival III: Road to Clefication. The album will also feature Thugger, along with Afrojack, Avicii, and Walk the Moon.

Recently, ‘Clef spoke with Pigeons & Planes about the two upcoming efforts. “The start of the carnival is called the J’ouvert,” he explained. “So the full-length Carnival album is going to come out in June, and this is saying this is the start of the carnival. And because I have so much music that I’m working on and sitting on, now I’m feeling like I can concoct this into a crazy album.”
