Four years after her last release, Girl on Fire, fifteen-time Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys is back with her newest single, titled In Common. The track, taken from her forthcoming sixth album, was written by Alicia Keys, Illangelo, Tayla Parks and Billy Walsh, and produced by Illangello (The Weeknd).
Now under new management, Keys is bringing her fans an "infectious summer jam [with] Latin inspired rhythms" that are sure to fuel clubs around the globe. It reflects much of Keys' roots and styles as a NYC woman who is active in Hip-Hop culture, and is the first major single since the hit Girl on Fire in 2012.
"We all have our issues, our challenges," Alicia explains. "We are all kind of messed up and that's all right. In fact, that's what helps us understand each other. To me, that is what's so beautiful."
You can catch Alicia performing In Common live for the first time on Saturday Night Live this coming Saturday, May 7. Even more importantly, she will be the first musician to ever open the UEFA Champions League Final and has chosen to do so with this empowering track.
Be sure to watch Alicia Keys as the newest judge on the 11th season of NBC's The Voice this Fall.
Keys' new album will be released sometime this summer through RCA Records.
