Featured: Wake Up by The Roots and John Legend

Wake Up
Mix the funky sounds of The Roots and the smooth vocals of John Legend. Listen. It will take you there. We concluded that if God had kept working on the seventh day, this would have been created. Or maybe, God needed to rest up to work up to this level of amazing. Or maybe, this was created on the sixth day and it blew God’s mind and thus the need to rest. Regardless, it’s totally awesome (unless you don’t like funky stuff, then you probably won’t like it).
The song selection excited us as much as the artists performing them. The Roots and Legend covered songs of social justice from the ’60s and ’70s; reshaping them with quality and imaginative style.

Oh. Yes. They. Did.
