After a long hiatus, Alicia Keys surprised fans last night with her brand new single called In Common.
Now available on iTunes, it’s safe to say that an album is on the way this year as the follow up to her last project, Girl on Fire. The track was produced by Illangelo (who has worked with Drake and The Weeknd) and has dancehall/Latin influences mixed with R&B.
As Keys questions
“Who wants to love somebody like me?
You wanna love somebody like me?
If you could love somebody like me
You must be messed up too“ you can’t help but relate to the lyrics and get caught up in the production as the songstress tries a new sound. In Common is a nice warm up track to prep listeners for the reintroduction of the “No One” singer and it’s perfect timing for the summer.
