Alicia Keys Releases New Dancehall Groove

Alicia Keys fans can rejoice and breathe a sigh of relief because the Grammy award-winning singer is back with new music. Over the last few months, the songstress and her husband, producer Swizz Beatz, have posted snippets and pictures assuring music lovers they were cooking up something fresh for everyone to enjoy. The dynamic power couple stayed true to their word with the 35-year-old releasing a new single late last night called, “In Common.

Although it is a very different groove from her previous body of work, we are definitely feeling the dancehall nostalgia that it brings. It has been nearly four years since the classical pianist released her last full-length album, Girl on Fire. Unfortunately, we will have to wait a little longer because she isn’t expected to drop a full collection of work until later this year (insert major sad face). However, if you want to satisfy your musical taste buds, Keys and her hubby aren’t shy about sharing brief snippets of their studio vibes on Snapchat or Instagram.

As another bonus for the double-win this week, the news of her musical return comes just in time because she is set to perform on Saturday Night Live! We already have our DVRs ready, how about you?

Before she takes center stage, take a listen to the track below and tell us if Alicia Keys new single was honestly worth the wait. Happy listening!
