Wake Up! Well I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting for this album for a while. “Wake Up!” is John Legend and The Roots’ collaboration album. The album was inspired by Barack Obama’s presidential run. The album is mostly covers of many wonderful songs from the 60s and 70s. In my opinion, Wake Up! is very uplifting and it talks about issues that are real. Individually, Legend and The Roots preach songs about self empowerment and awareness and are very soulful artists, and they took all of that to the next level with this album. The album was released today and features many artists like Common, Melanie Fiona, and many others. So I strongly advise you go out and buy this album. It is definitely worth it.
