Wyclef Jean “Lady Haiti” Video Shot During Haitian Flag Weekend In Miami

Last month, hip hop star Wyclef Jean came to Miami to help Haitians celebrate Haitian pride and the one year anniversary of Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood with a block party for 2,000+ fans. During his visit,  Jean showed his love to the Miami community by including fans in the video for his single “Lady Haiti”, a tribute to Haiti on his new J’ouvert EP.

Here’s a few behind the scenes photos from one of the locations of the shoot.

The Lyrics:

I’m in love with Lady Haiti
And when they called me to the Grammys
I wrapped her flag all around me
Cause I’m in love with Lady Haiti
I’m so in love they call me crazy
I left the music went to Haiti
Even though they tried to stop me
I’ve seen the earth shake right under her feet
She told me ‘baby don’t weep’
I’m sitting on Oprah, tears in my eyes
I knew your story ever since a kid
Developed a crush when I heard what you did
1804 you made my people free
You the reason I feel I can be anything
She in the white sand
Under the hot sun, eh
Love when she talking that Creole, eh
Gadé bèl fanm
I’m in love with Lady Haiti
And when they called me to the Grammys
I wrapped her flag all around me
Cause I’m in love with Lady Haiti
I’m so in love they call me crazy
I left the music went to Haiti
Even though they tried to stop me
I’m in love with lady Haiti
Miss Haiti
Miss Haiti
They tried to make you turn on me for real
Said I stole everything that we built
You told me don’t bother, the truth’s in my eyes
From the bottom of the buck and straight to the top
Every time you around I can feel the clock stop
Despite what they think, we got a chance
Cause we got one last dance
She in the white sand
Under the hot sun, eh
Love when she talking that Creole, eh
Gadé bèl fanm
I’m in love with Lady Haiti
And when they called me to the Grammys
I wrapped her flag all around me
Cause I’m in love with Lady Haiti
I’m so in love they call me crazy
I left the music went to Haiti
Even though they tried to stop me
I’m in love with lady Haiti
Miss Haiti
Miss Haiti
Sakapfèt, Sakapfèt, Sakapfèt

Miss Haiti
I’m in love with Lady Haiti

Miss Haiti
