?uestlove x D'Angelo At Bonnaroo Superjam Ep. 4: The Return Of D'Angelo

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

?uestlove and D'Angelo tackle The Beatles' catalog with a funky take on "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" remixed by ?uesto for the fourth and final installment of their 2012 Bonnaroo Superjam series. The song written by Paul McCartney and enshrined on the Abbey Road LP, is in for a full funk makeover once the bass drops. The stank dripping from the band makes it abundantly clear that a decade's hiatus does nothing to lower the levels of funk in the blood. D'angelo solidifies his return as the performance slides into a jam break that channels Prince and James Brown with little regard to how deep they are down the sonic rabbit hole. The band riles the crowd just enough to leave them foaming at the mouth by the end of the performance - a moment pregnant with symbolism that ?uestlove is careful not to waste, as he reminds the massive crowd of what they have just witnessed. Quit funkin' around and check the footage below.
