Today sees the long-awaited return of Alicia Keys, fifteen-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and producer, with the release of her new single ‘In Common’. The single is now available across all digital music platforms and on radio across Africa and the world.

‘In Common’ is Alicia’s first release in four years, taken from her forthcoming sixth studio album due out later this summer. The new album reflects her roots in New York City and hip-hop culture, while blending her perspective of the raw humanity of the world and who she is today as an activist, woman and artist.

‘In Common’ is an infectious summer jam with Latin inspired rhythm that aims to ignite airwaves and dance floors across the globe. The single was written by Alicia Keys, Illangelo, Tayla Parks, Billy Walsh and produced by Illangelo, Grammy-Award winning producer of The Weeknd, a Canadian singer, songwriter, rapper and record producer.

Alicia explains ‘In Common’ refers to the fact that we all have our issues and our challenges. “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,” she says.
