“Shine” (Live In NYC)

    The Roots and John Legend took to the Apple Store in Soho, New York City to celebrate the release of their collaborative album, Wake Up!, when it dropped Sept. 21. And, apparently, they weren’t just performing a majority of the album’s tracks, they were also recording the entire show for future release as a live EP. The project, iTunes Live from Soho: John Legend & The Roots, features eight of the full album’s 12 tracks, including the one original composition, “Shine.” And to promote the EP, they have chosen to leak the live version of “Shine,” which here is made that much more triumphant as its expanded into a nearly nine-minute jam.


    The EP is available for purchase on iTunes. Listen to “Shine” at 2DopeBoyz.
