Common, Karriem Riggins, and Robert Glasper released their debut album as August Greene earlier this year and now they drop a remix of the song “Optimistic” featuring Kirk Franklin, BJ The Chicago Kid, and Kierra Sheard instead of Brandy.
Common said this about working with his bandmates:
“August Greene actually formed before we chose a name, before we even knew it was a band. Karriem, Rob and I go back many years. It was something natural. When I started working with them it was like, “man, this feels like home,” and it felt new and fresh. We love working together. The music takes us all to new places and it just feels like everything I want to be as a musician is within the group of August Greene.”
