Have a few burning questions about Wyclef Jean?

You're not the only one!

To celebrate the release of his latest album, "Carnival III" (an album 10 years in the making!), Wyclef dropped by the studio and answered a few questions for us — specifically, the three questions people Google about him most.

And his answers didn't disappoint!

The first query: What does Wyclef mean?

"My dad named me after a Reformatator from the 14th century from England," Wyclef explains. (That would be John Wycliffe, who was a leader of the Reformation movement.)

He adds, laughing, "They said I'm so swagged out, because I'm a Haitian with an English name."

How's that for a little history lesson!

Watch the video above to find out just how tall Wyclef really is (he says people always think he's short!) and whether or not he can speak fluent French.

Plus, for more on his album — including how he sampled Jupiter (yes, the planet!) on the album — watch the video below!
