The younger siblings of the Fugees' Wyclef Jean, the sister-brother duo of Melky and Sedeck Jean were born in Brooklyn, the product of a Haitian-American family; their father was an ordained minister who led a congregation in New Jersey, and the children regularly performed gospel music at his church. While Melky later studied classical music, Sedeck attended law school, but played in a band on the side; both quit college in 1993, however, and two years later recorded their debut effort "I've Got a Love, " later featured on the soundtrack to the film Love Jones. The duo then signed a record deal, but when their new label folded they returned to the studio to work on a demo recording which ultimately landed them in the middle of an intense bidding war; finally signing with MCA, in 1999 Melky Sedeck issued their debut LP, Sister and Brother.
