Alicia Keys - Here

Love the sound of Hallelujah. She certainly seems to have got some sort of creative spark back and I love the laid back visual aesthetic too. Reminds me of when she first came out.
In Common is so amazing. It does such a great job at its on trend dancehall-pop production the same way JB's Sorry, Work, and One Dance have, but what In Common has that those other songs don't is a tenderness and a sense of intimacy that is incredibly beautiful.

Alicia is so much better when she's in the quiet too. Songs like No One and Girl On Fire are almost unbareable to me because her belting voice is just obnoxious. But her softer tone in In Common and Try Slepping with a Broken Heart is to die for.

So they spent the entire video budget renting out the studio or what?

What a waste of everyone's time. Song is still Top 5 singles of the year anyway.
So is this going to be an actual hit then, because that would be quite a nice thing to happen wouldn't it.

I like the video a lot too - a few years ago I would've said it's too ~aesthetic~ but I think she could get away with it in 2016.
