August Greene - Optimistic (feat. Brandy)

The new Jazz/RnB/Hip-hop supergroup "August Greene" features hip-hop guru/actor "Common" with talented Grammy award winning producer "Robert Glasper" & drummer "Karriem Riggins". Their new introduction single "Optimistic" an urban classic from the great gospel group the "Sounds Of Blackness" is easily justified by the soulful vocals of "Brandy" & keeps the original RnB version still intact, but I shamelessly do confess that i am bias to this 80's cover as it is one of my all time favourites.

Keep an ear out for their self titled LP "August Green" which drops in March 2018 cause you know if the first single is quality like this, the bar has been set.
