John Legend & The Roots ft. Common & Melanie Fiona – Wake Up Everybody

Off of their collaborative album, Wake Up!, due out September 21st, John Legend and The Roots link up with Common and Melanie Fiona, as the cover Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes’ 1975 classic, “Wake Up Everybody”.

There should be an accompanying video dropping soon, as they shot for the video this past week in Brooklyn.

Sidebar: Not much to say, except WOW. This record is an instant classic, as John Legend’s vocals, The Roots’ background instrumentation, Melanie Fiona’s chorus vocals and Common’s verse are all perfect. I love this record. Enjoy.
