Watch A Sneak Preview Of The Weeknd x The Roots Rehearsing "Earned It" For Roots Picnic Tomorrow!
This short clip of The Weeknd rehearsing his Fifty Shades Of Grey hit "Earned It" with a little help from The Roots (shared by the "unbreakable" Yameen Allworld) maybe the most exciting preview of The Roots Picnictomorrow--and we were already pretty geeked. Lest you think this is just a bit of soundcheck fun, our heroBlack Thoughtjust hinted at an onstage collabo in this new-brand Mass Appeal interview (and he seems pretty excited about the prospect, as well):
"Im looking forward to it because you know there may be a couple of surprises, a little bit of cross-contamination when we do events like this. Certain artists kind of lend themselves to each others sets.
Im looking forward to the possibility of The Weeknd coming out with us and doing something, or us doing something with The Weeknd. Erykahs gonna be there, and Rocky. I feel like theres a possibility for an amazing combination of collaboration that would be impromptu in that way and still be very organic and feel like a moment in time for the audience."
There you have it. While there are plenty of other surprises still in store for those that will be joining us on Festival pier, this clip is a brief but tantalizing taste of what you could be hearing from the mighty Roots crew and The Weekndso keep your eyes on the Philly Landing stage, 'round about 7:30pm tomorrow night. See you there!
