Common Brings “Fancy Free Future Love” To The View

Performs Special Birthday Freestyle For Co-Host Sunny Hostin

Follows Triumphant Performance at The Apollo of “Exquisite” (People) New Album Let Love

This morning, Common brought the ecstatic love song “My Fancy Free Future Love” — as well as an off-the-cuff birthday freestyle — to The View for a special birthday performance for co-host Sunny Hostin. Common also discussed family therapy and how his daughter Omoye helped him grow as both a man and a father. The modern renaissance man — a GRAMMY-, Emmy-, and Oscar-winning rapper, activist, actor, and New York Times Bestselling author — is fresh off the release of his “exquisite” (People) new album, Let Love (out now on Loma Vista), which Stereogum calls “one of his most personal, raw collections.”

Last week, Common headlined the legendary Apollo Theater. Backed by a stunning band, Common weaved the new album with a mix of classic cuts, special guests, and heartfelt storytelling that provides an intimate look at the ups-and-downs of fatherhood, relationships, and therapy and chronicles his journey to self-love and actualization.
