Yes, you read that correctly. For his second single this week, Pusha T has dropped a Kanye West-produced single featuring—miraculously, incredibly—the one and only Ms. Lauryn Hill. Mike Dean also leant production on “Coming Home”, whose beat feels like vintage Kanye, whose lyrics find Ms. Lauryn Hill in a gracious state of mind.

“Coming Home”, with its feel-good tenor and laidback beat, has us excited over Pusha T’s upcoming project. This is the second single he’s dropped this week, the first being “Sociopath,” also produced by Kanye West. The pair of singles follow last year’s Grammy-nominated DAYTONA.
The last time fans heard new music from Ms. Lauryn Hill was in 2016, with an updated version of “I Find It Hard To Say (Rebel),” which first appeared on 2002’s MTV Unplugged 2.0. “Old tune, new Version, same context, even more relevant now: sick and tired of being sick and tired,” Hill wrote in a statement accompanying the track.
“Coming Home” finds everyone—Push, Kanye, and Ms. Lauryn Hill—in a state of unabashed jubilation. Those feelings you get from coming home after a long stay, elsewhere. We hope this isn’t the last time these minds link up for a track. But in the mean time, we hope you enjoy “Coming Home”, today.
