Here is a fan video of Ms. Lauryn Hill speaking to the audience and performing “Lost Ones” in Stockholm, Sweden. She said:

“We appreciate your love and I have to believe that what I did the first time, you received my sincerity from it. So you knew through all those years, all the things that people said, they had no idea what was going on behind the scenes. But understand that my intention was always to come back and give a better version of the story. A more truthful, more honest, more transparent version of the story.”
