3. Lauryn Hill, “Turn Your Lights Down Low”
Lauryn Hill

If there is one good thing to be said about the advancements in music technology, itโ€™s that it gave Bob Marley the opportunity to make a track with Lauryn Hill. Marleyโ€™s โ€œTurn Your Lights Down Lowโ€ featuring Lauryn Hill was perhaps the best track from the Chant Down Babylon hip-hop covers experiment in the late 90s. Marley and Hill, who incidentally is the mother of Marleyโ€™s grandchildren, came together digitally as seamlessly as if this was an original recording.

Also worth checking out is Lauryn’s emotional live version of Marleyโ€™s soul-stirring version of โ€œChances Are,โ€ from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon two years ago.
