This month, the inimitable Ms. Lauryn Hill released her first new music in several years, the single "Guarding the Gates" from the soundtrack of Queen & Slim. Which is notable enough, but if you peruse the credits on this track you'll notice a local connection.

Taking on production duties for Hill's comeback is Orlando's own DiVinci of Solillaquists of Sound/Chakra Khan. And OW readers will remember that this is a collaborative relationship that goes back several years.

"Guarding the Gates" dropped on Nov. 15, and can be purchased or streamed on all the usual platforms now. Take a listen below.
