Common joined by Swizz Beatz to perform “Hercules” on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show.
Common was featured as the musical guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and he brought someone along; Swizz Beatz. We rarely ever see the music producer take the stand and perform live music but it was a much appreciated sight on The Tonight Show. Both Common and Swizz oozed so much chemistry while performing the song, which Swizz also produced and also added vocals to.
Common is one of very few rappers who can successfully pull off an acting career and a rap career simultaneously. The glory rapper is known for many of the films which he has starred in and continues to deliver with his new projects. Now, the American artist is back in the music scene with the release of the Swizz Beatz produced ‘Hercules‘. Common is also preparing for the release of his new album, Let Love which is scheduled to drop on Aug. 30. The upcoming album would be his first since 2016’s Black America Again which was his eleventh studio album.
