Common has released a new single, Imagine.

Led by the rapper's free and easy flow, the laid back collaboration with Los Angeles-based singer PJ comes accompanied by an emotional video directed by Emmanuel Afolab. It was shot in LA as the world begins to get back on its feet and people look beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. Common said:

"I wrote Imagine at a time when we were all going through a lot. But something kept telling me to focus on the good and the things I wanted to see in the world. For me, music is one of the things that gives me hope and happiness throughout these times, whether I am creating it or listening to it. So I wanted Imagine to create that feeling of how you can play a song and feel inspired. How a song can make you move and also move your spirit. Essentially, I want us all to feel like days are getting better and that great times are ours for the taking. And the first step in feeling that way is imagining it."

The track marks the first release from Common since his nine-track project 'A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 1, released in October 2020.
