The Roots are bringing out all their friends for their 7th annual Roots Picnic.
Short-shorts, dorky dads, guest stars, moody medleys: Drake’s ‘SNL’ hosting gig had it all, though some of it didn’t exactly work.
This year, everyone and their mother was singing along to Lorde’s anti-consumerist anthem “Royals,” but the New Zealand teen wasn’t the only new kid on the block who got us excited.
Jhene Aiko was almost a teenage pop star, but she soon realized she wanted to do her own thing. Now she’s in control of her career and ready to make a name for herself with a little help from her hip-hop friends.
“‘Sail Out’ basically means to be free,” Aiko proclaims during a spoken-word break in the video. “Go with the wind, you know, like a sailboat. I think that’s really important when it comes to peace…inner peace especially.”
