Listening Booth – The Roots, “How I Got Over”

This has been making the rounds for a few weeks, but I just heard it today.  It’s the lead single and title track off the next Roots album, How I Got Over.  This has already been played on Jimmy Fallon’s awful show, so I guess I’ll have to find a clip.

Nice.  The groove is undeniable, thanks in large part to ?uestlove always tasty drumming. That’s Black Thought singing on a few verses, with better-than-expected results. I have no idea if this R&B style is the direction the new album will take, but I like it already.

  • I like this one. And it reminds me, have you heard The Philadelphia Experiment? It’s a funk/jazz collaboration that involved ?uestlove.
