I haven’t been that big a fan of Alicia Keys, although I enjoyed her first album, she isn’t one of those artists I check for on a regular basis. Every now and then she’ll release a song I can get with and put on a mixtape like “Fire We Make” with Maxwell or that “Unthinkable” remix with Drake, but for the most part I wait and see.
Now she’s dropped her new single, “In Common,” and I’m into it. It kind of has that world beat rhythm and percussion with some EDM melody to it. And I like Alicia’s smoky/whisper singing on the track. Anyway, she performed the song on Saturday Night Live over the weekend and it was pretty good. Check it out:
