People .com just premiered the first single off the collaborative project of John Legend and The Roots Wake Up!. Entitled “Wake Up Everybody”, the track boasts an impressive line-up consisting of Common and Melanie Fiona. Here is what John Legend had to say about the project:
It says it all in the title. It’s saying we can’t depend on the older generation to fix everything for us; we gotta educate ourselves, empower ourselves and use the power that we have to make the world better.
If you can kind of transport your mind to what everyone was feeling at that time, there was a lot of energy in the country, a lot of feelings that we could all do something to make the country better and the world better, so we went back to music from the 60s and 70s where again, there was this feeling that young people were empowered and could do a lot in the world.
