Alicia Keys Kills It With Her New Single


Alicia Keys’ new single is FIRE! She has come a long way from the screeching hot mess of yesteryear. It’s been a long time coming!

“In Common” is the new single by Alicia Keys. I have to admit that I’ve not really been a fan of Mrs. Beatz. Her voice irritates me on the level of cats screeching outside to nails on the chalkboard. I’m not sure which is worse. I can name three other songs that I like by her. The rest- straight dookie. Screen Shot 2017-04-17 at 11.44.27 AM

Not this single though. I’m getting straight “808 and Heartbreak”, afropunk meets tribal house, and b-girl sexy. This shit is not a game. Vocally, she is giving me Vanessa Daou. That breathy, sexy and melodic whisper works for her. It’s waaaay better than her “being on fire”. The video is aesthetically and visually stunning with various shades of black people dancing and carrying on. It’s quite sensual.
