So earlier this fall I gave a preview of a new song at @capahs & thought as a holiday treat I’d share what we been working on for the past few 🥳 Thank you @citizensbank for putting together that amazing event at my alma mater CAPA. The kids loved it and I always love giving back to the school that gave so much to me. As i said earlier i played a snippet of a new Roots song called “Feel It (You Got It)” that we created for the #madeready campaign. We collabed with the talented #TIshHyman (follow @listen2tish) for this gem. You can click the bio link on @TheRoots page to hear is the fulll song on @spotify (it’s on all the streaming formats btw) thank you for listening #ad
The song is The Roots’ first official release since the Bilal-featured “It Ain’t Fair,” which appeared on the Detroit soundtrack. Previously, Questlove previewed “Feel It (You Got It)” during a DJ set at Philly’s Made Ready for Music event, presented by Citizens Bank.
