LIsten: In Common by @aliciakeys {Written by @Natural_Nation}

It has been four years! Four years, since Alicia Keys released Girl on Fire; her fifth studio album. But, to my surprise, this past week Keys released a single titled In Common.

The song features an EDM sound with clear African influence and undertones. I'm sure there are those who would even stick this particular song in the realm of Caribbean dancehall. I can hear and see the sound she was going for but to me it came up short and a little flat. Who knows, maybe the song will grow on me but for now I'll be waiting for that album. Take a listen.
