What the Honest Man is Listening to - Wake Up Everybody

The Honest is not a fan of remakes, not by a long shot. The Hip Hop meets Pop stars' remake of Marvin Gaye's "What Going on"? Complete and utter bullshit. Hip Hop meets Pop Stars Part Deux remake of the original "We are the World"? A colossal clusterfuck. Duran Duran's remake of Public Enemy's "911 is a Joke"? Yea playa it exists. And sucks mejor ass amigos!!

But somehow John Legend, Melanie Fiona, Common, and the Roots crew formed Voltron to create a worthy listen of Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes (that's Teddy P on vocals)' timeless "Wake Up Everybody". Hell even Common's rap fits. Nice update ya'll and based on some of my recent posts, the song is definitely needed. Wake up everybody, no more sleepin' in beedddddd....
