Common
Common
A hip hop artist from Chicago, Illinois. Common (formerly known as Common Sense) arrived on the hip hop scene with his debut "Can I Borrow A Dollar?", and is well known for his sophmore release "Resurrection" and his later collaborations with The Soulquarians. In 2005, he worked with Kanye West and J Dilla on his album "BE". After a chilly reception in the press for "Electric Circus", his fifth album, "BE" was seen as a return to form for Common. Common again collaborated with Kanye West, the late J.Dilla, will.i.am and newcomer Devo Springsteen on his seventh studio album "Finding Forever". At the same time, Common started an acting career, starring in films such "American Gangster", "Smoking Aces" and "Wanted" to name a few.

NICOLE’S FIRST SINGLE “YOU” HINTS AT THE SCOPE OF HER ROBUST RANGE AND THE INTERNATIONAL IMPLICATIONS OF THE SOUND. A REGGAE GROOVE SIMMERS BENEATH JAZZ-Y HORNS AS HER JAW-DROPPING DELIVERY TAKES THE SPOTLIGHT BEFORE SLIPPING INTO A SAMPLE OF THE ORIGINAL INSTRUMENTAL BEHIND WU-TANG CLAN’S CLASSIC “C.R.E.A.M.” IT’S POETIC, POWERFUL, AND PROVOCATIVE—AND THE PERFECT WAY TO GET TO KNOW THE SINGER.“IN THE MEDIA, THE PROFILE OF BLACK MALES IS PRETTY NEGATIVE,” SHE SIGHS. “IN THE HEAVY TIMES WE’RE GOING THROUGH RIGHT NOW, WE DON’T HAVE AN ENCOURAGING SONG ABOUT THE BEAUTY, STRENGTH, AND INTELLIGENCE OF OUR BLACK MEN. I DECIDED TO WRITE ONE. I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE COOL TO TURN IT AROUND MAKE A LOVE STORY ABOUT THIS SUBJECT. THE ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ SAMPLE FELT SO PERFECT. IT’S A VERY BEAUTIFUL DEDICATION TO BOOST CHARACTER AND MORALE AND SHARE LOVE INSTEAD OF ALL THIS NEGATIVITY.”

WITH THAT SPIRIT, HER VOICE AND MESSAGE WILL RESONATE FOR A LONG TIME TO COME. “WHEN YOU LISTEN TO ME, I WANT YOU TO WALK AWAY WITH THE CONSCIOUSNESS THAT YOU ARE LOVED AND SPECIAL,” SHE LEAVES OFF. “I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE WITH OTHERS SO THEY CAN GET ENCOURAGED AND RELATE TO THE STORY IN THE MUSIC. IT WOULD BE GREAT TO SEE PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD DANCING AND ENJOYING THE MELODIES. WHENEVER THERE’S A BLUE DAY I PROMISE I CAN BE THE SUNLIGHT THROUGH YOUR SPEAKERS.”
