Alicia Keys is back and officially kicking off the launch for her sixth studio album entitled, HERE. The sixteen track set features the new single “Blended Family (What You Do For Love) featuring A$AP Rocky. The track is dedicated to Swizz Beatz ex-wife Mashonda and its a very personal track. The album serves as an ode to her hometown NYC.
““This album is so much about life, New York City, us as people, all the stories I saw growing up,” Alicia said during a recent appearance on the “Today” show. “It sounds like the New York that I know. It’s aggressive, it’s raw, it’s me being my most truthful…It is such powerful music. You are going to go crazy.”
Alicia’s track ‘In Common’ that she released earlier this year is absent from the track listing and we are hoping it still makes the cut, because it was an underrated gem. She will perform a free concert for fans in NYC this Sunday (Oct. 9) and host her annual Keep a Child Alive Black Ball on Oct. 19 at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Plus, she is set to take the stage at the Tidal X: 1015 show on Oct. 15 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
