Common ‘Nobody’s Smiling’ [Album Art]
Common‘s new album, Nobody’s Smiling, is ready to impact this summer on July 22nd, riding the wave of the thought-provoking Hype Williams mini-movie for the lead single to “Kingdom”. Common reveals a standard and deluxe (below) version of the album art, with the latter also featuring Lil Herb & King L. He talks all about the art work concept in the first video underneath too.
One more bonus BTS clip with Common centers on the making of “Kingdom”. How he worked with No I.D., picking the sample first, then enlisting a choir (led by the same guy who made R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly”), and finally got the slick perspective verse from Vince Staples to take it to another level.
