August Greene – Optimistic ft. Brandy

August Greene just released a pretty sweet cover of The Sounds Of Blackness classic track Optimistic. This rendition features Brandy on the hook and showcases Common with the verses. What’s even better is the fact that the newly formed group August Greene is actually made up of Common, Robert Glasper & Karriem Riggins… this should make for some pretty good vibes coming soon. Check out Optimistic and look out for August Greene’s self-titled album dropping March 9th as an Amazon original. Enjoy~
