took on Queen Latifah Marlon Wayans on Thursday night's Lip Sync Battle, and it was truly a battle of the sexes sexiness!

Later, Marlon tried a much smoother tactic with his version of
's Sam Smith Stay With Me!
But Queen Latifah kept the old school flow by
impersonating LL with his Rock The Bells! Even Marlon had to bow down to the Queen's skills!

has made her way back onto Lauryn Hill Billboard Charts for the first time in 10 years with her song Repercussions, which leaked online last month.
It’s a bit of a mysterious track, as it is unclear at this time if it’s a future release, or a previously unreleased track, but either way, it’s getting attention.
The last time Hill saw herself on Billboard Charts was in 1999 with her song
Turn Your Lights Down Low, which hit #49 on the list.
Looks like she’s ready to start performing again. Hill recently performed at a New Zealand music festival in January, and she’s slated to perform at the
“Rock the Bells” concert in L.A. this weekend.
Do U think it’s time for a Lauryn Hill comeback?
