Cut: "Nothing Even Matters" (Lauryn Hill ft. D'Angelo)

Yesterday I was revisiting Ms. Hill's groundbreaking solo debut album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and while she hasn't released much new music since, when your debut solo effort is as brilliant as The Miseducation, you really don't have to in my book.

While I have posted this cut from Lauryn Hill and D'Angelo before, it is one of those timeless collaborations and in my opinion is one of the top duets, only possibly behind Luther Vandross and Cheryl Lynn's rendition of "If This World Were Mine."

Although a large portion of the album's love songs would turn out to be bitter from Hill's previous relationship, "Nothing Even Matters," a duet performed by Hill and D'Angelo, showcased a brighter, more intimate perspective on the subject.

The song was inspired by Hill's relationship with Rohan Marley. Speaking about "Nothing Even Matters"' lyrics, Hill remarked "I wanted to make a love song, á la Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway, and give people a humanistic approach to love again without all the physicality and overt sexuality."

With that said, take a listen to this cut "Nothing Even Matters" below and Enjoy!
