Common Puts His Own Spin on Solange’s “Cranes In The Sky”


It seems like everybody has been inspired by Solange’s powerful song”Cranes In The Sky.”

Just a week ago, Kaytranada added some dance vibes to the A Seat At The Table standout. Today, Common was so inspired by the Solange track that he put his own spin on it. On the unofficial remix, the Chi-town native raps:

Now I’m carrying loads of baggage I don’t claim/If she start tripping I’m hopping on the plane/Cranes in the sky, I know how the metal sound/I never settled in life so it’s hard to settle down/Staying on my square trying not to get around.

According to The Fader, Common described “Cranes In The Sky” as a track that had “the sound of forever.” “Every time I listened to it, I keep wanting to hear it again and again. I started mumbling some words to it and then decided I want to write a verse,” he said.
