The Roots (feat. John Legend)

The Roots are back, taking a break from jamming nightly as Jimmy Fallon’s house band to distill their live instrumental jams into a album, “How I got Over”.

The new single “Fire” features R&b crooner John Legend and a post-apocalyptic war-themed video treatment courtesy of Rik Cordero (Jay-Z, Nas, Snoop Dogg, Q-Tip). The video does beg the question, though – what’s up with the trend of super-gritty music videos? M.I.A. and HEALTH I’m looking at you here.
