Barack Obama’s Presidential victory Tuesday night inspired fellow Chicagoan Common to leak the song “Changes” from his upcoming album “Universal Mind Control,” due Dec. 9. [Scroll down to hear track.]      

       “I wrote this song to inspire the young world to believe that change can happen. To be honest, I also envisioned it as a great inaugural song for Barack Obama,” said Common of the track, which features singer Muhsinah Abdul-Karim as well as a spoken word appearance by his daughter Omoye.      

       Hopeful about Obama’s chances of a victory, Common was inspired to pen “Changes” during the campaign, but when hope became a reality, he was moved to leak the song ahead of schedule, according to a statement from thinkcommon.com.       

       Common has always been vocal about his support of Barack Obama and was even the first hip-hop artist to name check him in a song almost four years ago.
