The Roots Debut New Single

Hear The Roots’ New Single, “When the People Cheer”

The Roots debut "When the People Cheer" — a track from their upcoming album, And Then You Shoot Your Cousin.

Three years after their last album, undun, The Roots are finally back with an emotional new single, “When the People Cheer.” Laced with a soft, effective piano line and sad, sordid verses from Black Thought and Greg Porn, the song perfectly encapsulates some of the best attributes of the hip-hop band: hard-hitting, thoughtful lyrics paired with beautiful musical arrangements.
