Alicia Keys has never really gone anywhere—mostly because “Empire State of Mind” is an undying anthem—but she has been staying under the radar. That is until now. Today, the fifteen-time Grammy Award-winning singer has released her new single, “In Common.” The track was produced by Illangelo, a longtime collaborator of The Weekend, and hears Keys at her dancehall best. There are mellow traces of Rihanna’s “Work” and AlunaGeorge’s “I’m In Control,” meaning an obvious sound is shaping up for the summer.

On the song, Keys says, "We all have our issues, 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."

"In Common" will be performed live for this first time, this weekend, during the singer's performance on Saturday Night Live.
