Common feat. Macy Gray
Released: 16th April 2001.
Following a slump in singles sales since the massive hit "I Try", Macy Gray is going through a collaboration phase which seems to be working extremely well. This duet sees Macy belting out the chorus to the classic soul tune "Geto Heaven" in her own unique style, while Common raps on the verses. Hip hop flava'd soul which doesn't destroy an old favourite; merely updates and builds on it for the present day. Great stuff!
Macy Gray seems to be having her busiest year yet. Fresh from working with Fatboy Slim on "Demons", she looks set to have two hits on her hands - one coming soon with Black Eyed Peas, and this one with Common. Sadly, whilst her track with Black Eyed Peas is amazing, this one is very much its poor relation. There's nothing bad about it at all... but then again, there's nothing good about it either!
