John Legend & The Roots - Hard Times (featuring Black Thought)
John Legend and The Roots are bringing out the best of each other’s great taste for pillar songs from soul music’s prime—the ’60s and ’70s on this new album. I really think this new album could be a benchmark in both of their careers. It’s rare we see The Roots make an alliance with a solo artist, Jay-Z was one of the last great moments when ?uestlove and company made history with him on his Unplugged album, carrying their live synergy to Madison Square Garden and beyond. Overall I really dig this song (Hard Times) and the entire album. It's about 11 tracks deep and all are very good. Check out this video of the live version.
Album in stores now!
