Don’t worry, Wyclef. We give you credit for trying.

The official list of approved candidates for Haiti’s presidency has been released, and Wyclef Jean did not make the cut.

There had been questions about whether or not he met Haiti’s residency requirements for the presidency. Wyclef was born in Haiti, but he left for the U.S. when he was 9 years old.

There had also been some questions that had come up regarding Wyclef’s charity, Yele Haiti Foundation, which reportedly had "accounting irregularities." Yikes.

Sorry it didn’t work out, but you had a good run there, Wyclef! Maybe next time.

Do U think Wyclef should have made the list?
