Jam On It: Common – ‘Red Wine’ Feat. Syd & Elena

“Get comfortable”

Shout out to those who have been following the musical career of Common, the emcee and actor hailing from Chicago. Though most of us became fans since he dropped Like Water For Chocolate back in 2000, true fans have been praising the emcee since his debut album Can I Borrow a Dollar? back in 1992. But regardless if you’ve been a fan for 10 or maybe 20+ years, there’s no denying the lyrical talent and hip-hop artistry displayed in all of his records. And now we’ve come to his 11th studio album Black America Again set to release on Friday, November 4th. The track list reads like an enthralling dinner party where guests like Marsha Ambrosius, Robert Glasper, Bilal, Syd, BJ The Chicago Kid and Stevie Wonder are casually making small talk in between courses. On “Red Wine,” Syd from The Internet starts off the soulful track with her whispery vocals, repeating “get comfortable…” as if we weren’t already feeling the cozy vibes. Common’s verse is short but gets to the point before singer Elena Pinderhughes rounds off the track. We’ll have our ears open to any new surprises from the album but for now, you can stream the full version of “Red Wine” below.
