John Legend ft The Roots, Melanie Fiona & Common “Wake Up Everybody” (New Music 2010)


So what happens when four amazing artists are put into a booth to do a track for a old-school cover album?

Magic is created!

John Legend alongside The Roots formed the idea of collaborating on a whole album together in 2008, and two years later they have decided to bring it to life. This project is inspired by old-school soul of the late 60s and 70s and will feature covers from prominent artists of that time like Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Teddy Pendergrass.

How exciting!

“Wake Up Everybody” is the 1st single of the album and features Melanie Fiona & Common on the track, which is due for release September 21st 2010 entitled Wake Up!
