The last time Common released an album was two years ago. It’s been a long time coming, but we’re inching closer to a new drop! This Summer, the legendary Chicago MC is set to make his return with the release of “Let Love Have the Last Word.” During a private listening session at Gold Diggers in LA earlier this week, Common previewed tracks off the unfinished project. Common drew inspiration from his memoir, of the same title, for the album – driven by soulful instrumentation, production and lyrics. Contributions from Jill Scott, Swizz Beats and BJ the Chicago Kid, among some others, are present on the album.
Common last spoke on the album in a recent appearance Power 105’s The Breakfast club.
