After a break which lasted nearly two years, Common released a much awaited track titled “Her Love”, which is a sequence to 1994’s classic “I Used to Love H.E.R.”.
In the single, Common continues to address his true feelings and unyielding love for Hip Hop and raps about how it gave him a voice and allowed him to be heard.
You gave me a voice in the world
It's been hard to choose another girl
You everybody's but you my girl to me
I'm forever yours, to the tic-toc
I'm still talking 'bout you, hip-hop.
The music video is not less impressive, celebrating the diversity and essence of black women.
Currently, the Grammy and Academy award-winning rapper is working on his upcoming album Let Love Have the Last Word planned to be premiered in August. The album bears the name of Common’s new memoir released in May, which made it to The NY Best Seller list.
