John Legend and The Roots Release Wake Up!
John Legend continued to challenge his own creativity with Wake Up!, a collabo album with the Roots that primarily consisted of covers of soul songs from the '60s and '70s. Critically lauded but commercially slept on, the album took Legend into a different zone as The Roots backing tracks inspired him to push his vocal talents. G.O.O.D. Music’s logo on Wake Up! underscored their relentless commitment to innovation.
