1998’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, the debut solo album of R&B artist Lauryn Hill, was one the of best albums of the 90s. She earned 10 nominations and 5 wins at the 41st Grammy Awards, which is the most that any female artist has earned in one night. A combination of R&B, soul, reggae, and hip-hop, Hill’s album was incredibly versatile and creative, contributing to its continuing popularity almost 20 years after it was created. The inspiration for the album was based off of her serious relationship and consequent pregnancy with Rohan Marley. “To Zion”, is one of the songs on the album written about her love for her child and confidence in her decision to have him, though many around her advised against it.

In 2015, the Library of Congress included The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill in the National Recording Registry, due to its cultural, historical, and aesthetic significance. The album has been regarded as one of the best albums of all-time. The inspiration for the album title was from the film The Education of Sonny Carson and novel The Mis-Education of the Negro by Carter G. Woodson.
