New music from The Roots hasn’t come too often in the past few years as the legendary band has been busy with many side ventures.
But here’s a holiday treat from Questlove, Black Thoughts and company — a new track called ‘Feel It (You Got It)’. Questlove first debuted the song at his alma mater The Philadelphia High School For Creative & Performing Arts for Citizen Bank’s Made Ready for Music event. A Alan Ferguson-curated video running about 2 minutes for the track was then released shortly after.

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
