Video: Common – ‘Blue Sky’

Common reaches for the stars in the uplifting video for “Blue Sky,” the first single off his album The Dreamer/The Believer, due in December. The Parris-directed clip, which was shot at the Barclay Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, includes vignettes of people chasing their dreams including a violinist, ballerina, artist, and basketball player.

“We’re able to show the inspiration that the song creates,” Common told Rap-Up TV on set. “Now we’re able to take these vignettes and show people aspiring to get their dreams and that’s really what the song is about, like saying go get it.”
