Wait. Hold up. One minute. What?

According to ?uestlove, a supergroup consisting of Amy Winehouse, Raphael Saadiq and The Roots has been confirmed. Speaking to AOL’s Spinner, he said “the group is definitely going to happen” but that no name had been chosen for the outfit. He also mentioned that Winehouse is currently in the studio with producer and long-time collaborator Salaam Remi  [Source].

The main thing getting in the way? Apparently Wino’s lack of visa. The U.S government has a problem with her entering their country (honestly can’t think of one valid reason, can you?) but ?ueslove isn’t worried saying “I’ll be in France for four, five days, so I’ll see if she’s up for discussing this over dinner…We’ve been Skype-ing the sh– out of each other.”

This could be quite epic really. Amy Winehouse, The Roots & Raphael Saadiq? That’s too much. I pray, PRAY, this happens.

    Dope. No pun intended 🙂

    This is a crazy good look – perhaps working with genuine purist talent like the Roots and Raphael Saadiq will remind Amy of what she loves about this music thing. I really hope this goes ahead – can you imagine how hot this would sound?? 😮 We live in hope…
