As you may know The Roots and tUnE-yArDs are coming to this year's Summerfest. However, did you know The Roots' Questlove and tUnE-yArDs collaborate on cover of Fela Kuti's "Lady?"  The track is part of a forthcoming compilation called Red Hot + Fela album. The cover was recorded back in mid-May and it also includes Angelique Kidjo and rapper Akua Naru. 

The single kicks off a 10 day campaign called "Rush To Zero," which will raise funding and awareness in order to end mother-to-child HIV by 2015. The song is available now via iTunes, but you can check it out below.
