De in Haïti geboren Wyclef Jean begint eind jaren tachtig samen met Pras Michael en Lauryn Hill de groep Tranzlator Crew. Het zou het begin zijn van The Fugees die met hun tweede album The Score in 1996 wereldwijd doorbreken. In de Top 40 scoren ze dat jaar vier hits, waarvan er drie in de top 10 komen en Killing Me Softly zes weken op nummer 1 staat.



Jean gaat een jaar later solo verder en staat eind 1997 met Guantanamera op de 28e plaats in de Top 40. In 2000 staat hij, samen met Mary J Blige (op 911) voor het eerst in de top 10. Naast eigen nummers is Jean veelvuldig bezig met schrijven en produceren voor anderen. Zo was hij mede-verantwoordelijk voor de doorbraak van Destiny’s Child (No, No, No in 1998) en nummers voor onder meer Santana en The Black Eyed Peas.

In 2006 scoort Jean, die ook een politieke carriere in Haïti ambieert, voor het laatst in de Top 40. Hips Don’t Lie, samen met Shakira, wordt zijn eerste nummer 1-hit. In 2014 maakt hij, samen met Santana, Avicii en Alexandre Pires het nummer Dar Um Jeito (We Will Find A Way) dat één van de nummers rond het WK voetbal in Brazilië is.

Songtekst

[WYCLEF speaking (Claudette)]
(Oooh)
I'm just sittin here playing the guitar (Oooh)
(City High.. Claudette.. Wyclef)

[VERSE 1]
[WYCLEF:]
Excuse me, if you see me screaming
Deep in my mind, i'm only dreaming
cuz if i wake girl, and you're not by my side
i'd feel like half of me, is no longer alive
so please shorty, before you walk out that door
would you listen to my song

[CLAUDETTE:]
if only, i give you one last chance
with the devil, you can no longer dance
you got to be faithful, so we could be fruitful
build a family, and follow god faithfully
so just before i want to reply, i might listen to your song

[WYCLEF:]
ooh, before you walk out that door, listen

[CHORUS]
[WYCLEF:]
they say two wrongs don't make it right ((don't make it right))
So if i'm wrong i ain't trying to fight
I'm trying to have some dinner with some candlelight ((yeeahh))
lay up in the bed and make love all night
[CLAUDETTE:]
So papi I wont leave, maybe i'll just stay
you promise me that you'll do the same

[Wyclef ((Claudette)):]
girl i'ma love you like i never love
((touch me like you never touch me))
yo if you give me the chance girl
((yeah baby))
I'm gonna show you

[VERSE 2]
[CLAUDETTE ((Wyclef)):]
I'm gonna say ((i understand))
that i forgive you
and i aint gonna forget
that you brought me ?? ((baby, baby, baby))

[WYCLEF:]
But i have grown
from a thug to a man
Build my castle with bricks
and no longer with sand
Oh Girl

[Claudette:]
And just, before I want to reply, baby
I might listen to your song

[Wyclef:]
Ooh, before you walk out that door, listen

[CHORUS 2]
[WYCLEF:]

So if i'm wrong i ain't trying to fight ((i don't wanna fight))
I'm trying to have some dinner with some candlelight ((yeeahh))
lay up in the bed and make love all night
[CLAUDETTE:]
So papi I wont leave, maybe i'll just stay
you promise me that you'll do the same

[Wyclef ((Claudette)):]
and i'ma love you like i never love
((touch me like you never touch me))
yo if you give me the chance girl
I'm gonna show you

[BRIDGE]
[Claudette:]
I'm so used to the pain that I
Can't see the sunshine no more
I'm so used to the pain that the
the sickness feels like the cure

[Wyclef ((Claudette)):]
