Video: The Roots Perform NEW Single "How I Got Over" on Fallon
"Out here in these streets…" we've been waiting patiently to hear that new Roots sound, and last night we got it, with a bang, on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where ?uesto, Black Thought and crew debuted "How I Got Over," the first single and title track off their upcoming new ablum (How I Got Over, 10/20 on Def Jam). Watch the full performance here, featuring Dice Raw, a full brass section, Kamal and Poyser on keys, and Black Thought… singing! (And rapping, of course.) BT brings that Bobby Womack. We hear from the higher-ups that the song will be available for us all next week. You can also look forward to a video (supposedly dropping in July), and, DJs get ready, an exclusive 12 inch with "How I Got Over" on the A side, and a collectable "art sketch" on the B side. If you happened to see the full Fallon episode last night you also saw Okayplayer get that NBC shout out! Dap.
