Lily Allen Features On Us Rap Album

by | 10 April 2007

London popstar Lily Allen is to appear on the latest album from US rapper Common.

She is one of a number of artists who have made their mark on the album, entitled Finding Forever.

Explaining the meaning of the title, the Chicago rapper told Billboard: "I want to leave a mark on this earth. By making music and saying what I have to say in my music is one of the ways I will exist forever."

Allen collaborated with Common on the track Driving Me Wild, a song about obsessions. "Driving herself crazy like the astronaut lady," Common raps in it. "Love is not a mystery, it's everything."

Other collaborations with Common include production from Kanye West, will.i.am, the late J Dilla and Devo Springsteen, while Bilal and Dwele sing background vocals on a couple of tracks.

Those keen to get their hands on the album will be able to do so from July 10th.

Common's album Be debuted last year at number two on the US' Billboard 200.
