Common is Back with His New Album, ‘Let Love’

Common is no stranger to sharing his truth through the mic. He bares it all on his 12th studio album, and he’s not afraid to get personal.

The Chicago rapper was inspired to create his album by his own memoir, Let Love Have the Last Word, but you won’t need to read his book to connect with the music. In a recent interview with Apple Music, he explains the meaning behind the album title. “When I say ‘Let Love’, I’m saying put love into practice. Allow love to be the law that we abide by.”
