Elijah Blake ft. Common - X.O.X

Posted about 3 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Yonny & Sleep
Album:
Bijoux 22

I can tell you from experience that few things suck more than being romantically involved with someone who’s still in love with an ex—except, perhaps, being the person who can’t get over that old flame. An up-and-coming R&B singer recently signed to Def Jam by Chicago production heavyweight No I.D., Elijah Blake finds himself in the latter position on his latest single and first Booth feature, X.O.X.. Over Yonny & Sleep‘s low-key, piano-driven boardwork, the artist racks his brains about how to let his new chick down easy, in the process showcasing an impressive, emotionally-charged falsetto. Windy City vet Common pines after an old flame of his own on the cut’s back end. Fans can find this poignant jam and much more on free digital LP Bijoux 22, available now online.

Update: X.O.X is now available for purchase at iTunes with a visual accompaniment on the way.
