Back in October, Common released his latest body of work A Beautiful Revolution (Pt. 1), which saw nine cuts and additional appearances from Jessica Care Moore, Black Thought, Lenny Kravitz, Morgan Parker, and PJ — the last of whom appeared on four of the project’s tracks, including the standout single “What Do You Say (Move It Baby).” This month, Common unveils a remix of “What Do You Say,” which sees Damian Marley contributing his positively charged harmonies to the Karriem Riggins-produced number:

“Special to me, and its pretty much the same for anyone wha meet you, cause to know you is to want you and to need you, and dem a gwaan like dem blind when dem see it, special to me, you greet dem with a smile dem a wonder a wha sweet you/

Meditation high, negativity beneath you, stand up side by side on our own two feet, like his and her majesty when dem fulfill the prophecy, and coronate as king and queen/”

Common’s latest official studio LP, Let Love, made landfall in 2019. The Chicago veteran’s twelfth album saw 11 songs and a wealth of contributions from Daniel Caesar, the late J Dilla, Swizz Beatz, Leikeli47, BJ The Chicago Kid, A-Trak, Jill Scott, Leon Bridges, and more. Outside of music, Common’s also continuing to expand within his acting career — recently, it’s been announced that he’s joining the cast in a recurring role for the Netflix dramedy “Never Have I Ever.” He’ll be playing as Dr. Chris Jackson during the show’s second season. Previously, he could be seen on last year’s “Home Movie: The Princess Bride” and Ava.
