It’s been many moons since we last heard from Alicia Keys. In the four years since the release of her number one album Girl On Fire, Alicia has been enjoying life as mother to her two boys Egypt and Genesis, and taking a step back from the touring, and spotlight.
But Alicia was made for this, so we knew she’d return. Late Tuesday night (May 3) Keys took to Instagram to release her new single “In Common.” The song is a departure from her branded soulful sound, and opts for a more international vibe. While Keys chooses to delicately sing of the similarities between her and her love, the lyrics paint a picture of a couple who mirror one another in ways never before experienced with past lovers.
No word on when (or if an album) will soon follow, but until then, get into this new AKeys.
