Album: Be
Producer: Kanye West
Label: G.O.O.D Music/Geffen

Samples: "Nothing Can Change This Love" (1965)

Common and Kanye teamed up to create one of the best tracks off Common’s sixth album, Be. Kanye samples the piano from Otis Redding’s cover of Sam Cooke’s “Nothing Can Change This Love” for both the chorus and alternating verses. Redding’s cover appeared on The Great Otis Redding Sings Soul Ballads with a slower, more romantic version of the bluesy, uptempo original by Cooke.
