The Roots – “The Fire” f. John Legend

The Roots just released the third leak, “The Fire”, from their upcoming album, How I Got Over. It’s the second track off the album to feature crooner John Legend. The Roots first premiered this song during the the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics. This is another uptempo and inspiring track for their anticipated LP. While I’m not the biggest John Legend fan, he does very little to ruin this song for me. Black Thought sounds focused, and the instrumentation and production is superb. I can’t wait to see them on tour this month. The Roots also released the final track listing for the album which drops June 22, which you can check out below. Please give the song a spin and let us know what you think. [via]
