Watch Common Debut New Single “When We Move” with Black Thought and The Roots on ‘The Tonight Show’

The afrobeat-anchored single appears on the upcoming Common album, A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 2.

Just days after announcing a sequel to his 2020 project, A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 1, Common has unveiled the album’s lead single.

As promised, ahead of the track’s arrival on DSPs this morning, the Chicago rapper and activist took to The Tonight Show stage to debut “When We Move” with Black Thought, The Roots, and Seun Kuti. With the Studio 6B house band at his back, Com, Thought, and a beamed-in Kuti deliver an electric performance of the empowering afrobeat-anchored single, offering a brightly funky glimpse of the rapper’s incoming 14th studio album.

A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 2 is slated to drop on September 10th via Loma Vista Recordings, featuring appearances from Brittany Howard, PJ, Isaiah Sharkey, and more. The project will mark Common’s third album in as many years, following 2020’s A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 1, and 2019’s Let Love, which serves as an accompanying soundtrack to the rapper’s memoir, Let Love Have The Last Word.
