Elijah Blake x Common - "X.O.X." [Official Video]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Elijah Blake drops the video for his emotionally driven single "X.O.X." featuring Common. The track is one of eight on his Bijoux 22 EP - a breakout project that follows his deal with RocNation, inked this past summer. The singer/songwriter who has written for Keyshia Cole, Usher and Rihanna steps out on his own with this project. This track touts a catchy hook and familiar sample courtesy of the O'Jays' "Backstabbers." Common takes the wheel for a verse that matches the sentiment without sacrificing his true school aesthetic.
