On his latest record, 47-year-old emcee and author Common explores what it means to let love in. Like a damn crystal sitting on a sun-drenched window ledge, Let Love is a positivity prism that encourages reflection and the power of spreading the love by all means necessary. Detroit’s own J Dilla receives a few nods on the record, which marks the 12th in Common’s catalog and is also inspired by his 2019 New York Times bestselling memoir, Let Love Have the Last Word. The book finds the Oscar-, Golden Globe-, Emmy-, and Grammy Award-winning artist dishing out wisdom on how mindfulness is the key to community togetherness and to his own successes.
