Alicia Keys Makes A Sharp Turn Toward The Dance Floor On New Single ‘In Common’

5 May 2016
Alicia Keys has left her piano far behind on her first single of 2016.

“In Common” follows last year’s hip-hop-fueled “28 Thousand Days” with a futuristic Afrobeat instrumental. Keys steps back from her signature belt here, quieting her voice to just above a whisper as she details an especially complicated courtship.

“We got way too much in common if I’m being honest with you,” she sings. “If you could love somebody like me, you must be messed up too.”

Sometimes being too similar to the object of your affections can cause problems, especially if you’re both terrified of what you see reflected back at you. But Keys takes that terror and turns it into a club-worthy jam. Listen below.
