WATCH COMMON’S LOVESTAR DOCUMENTARY [VIDEO]

Common connects with Essence Magazine to create this documentary about the love for Black women that stems off the lead single “Lovestar” from his 11th studio album.

“When I wrote the song, I was thinking about when you really love a person,” Common said to Essence.”I thought about when I love a woman and I can enjoy her, but at the same time she can enjoy me and we can have fun and laugh. But then there’s also a real bond that’s there that has spirituality, growth, support and integrity connected in it. We’re willing to make mistakes, but we’re there for each other; that’s true love.

“So the theme, Love Star, came up just because I thought it was a cool nickname to call somebody that you’re close to. I wanted to show that we revere and hold you high, Black woman. We love you and care for you and honor you.”
