Alicia Keys drops her first big single in 4 years | The Tylt
Alicia Keys is back and many would say it's by popular demand. The "Songs in A Minor" singer hasn't released a mainstream single in four years. Although, she released an under-performing non-commercial single "28 Thousand Days" in 2015. Her new song "In Common" could very well be her next big commercial success.
But Keys experimented with her sound on her last album "Girl on Fire," which was moderately successful compared to her previous works. And some critics haven't responded well to another shift in sound — some even going as far as calling "In Common" a rip-off song.
Is "In Common" Keys' comeback song? or should she go back to her roots?
Keys is gearing up for a "Saturday Night Live" appearance this weekend. And "In Common" will be featured on her upcoming sixth album.
What do you think: Is "In Common" #OnKeys or #OffKeys?

It sounds like Drake wrote this new Alicia Keys record, and I hate to say it, but it's not good. 😑👎— Cactus Howl (@CactusHowl) May 4, 2016
