Wyclef Jean has two big projects in the works before the end of 2016.
First, the former Fugees member will appear as a guest-star on an upcoming episode of NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU,” set to air later this fall.
He’ll play a famed music producer who’s newest and hottest client is embroiled in an assault case. The episode is titled “Bad Rap.”
Jean is also preparing to drop a new Caribbean-themed EP in November titled, “J’ouvert.” The five-track effort will precede the Haitian singer’s forthcoming full length album “Carnival III: Road to Clefication.”
“My goal for J’ouvert was to pick up where I left off after ‘Sweetest Girl’ and [Shakira’s] ‘Hips Don’t Lie,’” Clef told Rolling Stone in August. “I had these Caribbean Sonics Haunting my brain and I knew this EP would be the start to what would become the ‘Carnival 3 album.”
Wyclef’s other acting gigs include recurring roles on “Nashville” and “Third Watch,” as well as an appearance on another NBC series, “30 Rock.”
