Alicia Keys is back. Her last album was 2012’s Girl on Fire which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, being her fifth number 1 album. It’s certified Platinum, too. However since then, Keys has been busy being a devoted wife and mother, putting music on the back burner. She’s been involved with acting, with a role on Empire, and her usual philanthropic work.
After Swizz Beats confirmed last year that Keys is working on her new album, not much has been known until now. Keys has released “In Common” from her upcoming new album. She’s due to perform this Saturday on Saturday Night Live. “In Common” draws influence from the modern-wave of R&B and Electronic fuelled Pop; the beat itself is reminiscent of the new era of Bieber, with dashes of The Weeknd et al.
Listen to “In Common” here.
