Common is bringing the challenges of Black fatherhood to life through song in a heartwarming new music video for his single, ‘Show Me That You Love.’
The latest offering from his forthcoming album Let Love, the track hears the seasoned emcee team up with multi-talented songstress Jill Scott to explore the beauty, challenges and realities of fatherhood through the eyes of a proud dad wanting to strengthen his bond with his daughter. The song’s relatably-honest lyrics beautifully illustrate how reflection and self-accountability can often prove to be gateways to healing in relationships between fathers and their children.
Inspired by a life-changing phone call with his own daughter, Omoye Assata Lynn, the visual for ‘Show Me That You Love,’ sees Common take viewers through the highs and lows of his 22-year fatherhood journey thus far. The video also includes real-life footage of several precious moments between Common and Omoye over the years.
