New Single: Alicia Keys – ‘In Common’
She’s back! After taking a small break from music, Alicia Keys has returned and is raring to go with the debut of her new single, ‘In Common’, from her highly anticipated sixth studio album!
So what do you usually get with an Alicia lead single? A throaty vocal performance, belts for days, and her signature piano sound. Well, toss all that out the window – because none of that appears on ‘In Common’.
Continuing the dancehall trend that’s sweeping pop music, Alicia get in touch with a Caribbean flavor that’s equal parts unexpected and enjoyable. Vocally, it’s the most relaxed we’ve heard her in a well. There’s no over singing, there’s no strain notes – just light, airy vocals that add to the vibe the production creates.
How shocking, to be honest! We weren’t expecting this sound from Ms. Keys, but some time away allows an artist to experiment and reinvent themselves. We’re into it and can’t wait for more!
