Throwback Joint: Come Close by Common feat. Mary J. Blige

This is, by far, one of the sweetest songs and music videos ever created; my heart melts literally every time I watch it. As I have mentioned numerous times before, I love Common. He is such a solid musician. I you were paying attention to the news yesterday, you may have heard some of the to-do buzzing around concerning Common’s invitation to a White House poetry event. Faux News even went as far as to call Common a “vile rapper” which, in my opinion, is laughable. That is all I will say concerning that topic. Sit back, relax, enjoy, and reminisce…

  9. I love love love Common. I love the remix to this song with Erykah Badu and Q-tip. Fox news and their tomfoolery didn't stop the invitation so they can keep on harping. Fools.

  11. Amazing song and video. I cry every time I see the video because it makes me realize that sometimes fairytale love is all it is, a video concept (morbid I know? It crushes my dreams). Hopefully I can find someone who embodies the man Common is in this video and through this song. And I think Mary J. Blige should do a strictly Neo-Soul album asap!

    Those dumb conservatives should be so ashamed of themselves! Always mudslinging! If it's not one thing, it's another....they are just try to dim the light that has been shining on the president recently with all of the success that came with the demise of Osama so they feel that attacking Common will ruin the Presidents credibility. It truly is laughable!
