J’ouvert, which refers to the opening of Carnival season, is a reminder that Wyclef Jean mixed American pop with Caribbean island music long before Drake and Rihanna. Many of the songs have a calypso sensibility; he tangos with Young Thug on “I Swear” and commemorates his homeland on “Lady Haiti.” The former Fugees frontman sings and harmonizes for much of his first album in seven years. But on “Hendrix,” he remembers his upbringing in a crime-infested New Jersey neighborhood as he raps, “When my cousin got his first Tec, I was playing Jimi Hendrix in the basement.”
