NEW MUSIC: Alicia Keys – New Day

I have been hesitant to post this new Alicia because I’m just not that big of a fan of it. She tries to make her comeback by enlisting her husband Swizz Beats to produce this new track. I love Alicia, even if her last album was hit or miss, but this track doesn’t break any boundaries at all. The beat is your generic Swizzy beat, and Alicia doesn’t do anything vocally to impress anyone. It is a good move to keep it sort of R&B, since there is none of that going on commercially. She has to compete with Keyshia Cole and now Kelly Rowland who are both releasing tracks featured with Lil Wayne pretty soon. So far this is the bottom of the 3 R&B females for me, but it’s nice to hear Alicia again.
