with the mass of America that loves and requests Alicia Keys’ new single, “In Common.” First and foremost, I am an Alicia Keys fan. I also love the fact that she appreciates a good jumpsuit (remember the “Karma” music video? That jumpsuit is I.C.O.N.I.C.). Outfits and #nomakeup aside, her new single is just upbeat enough to get you moving and chill enough to play at night on a long drive home (from the club or bea’s house?).
In my true fashion, I decided to see if there are decent remixes out there right now, because any good song can also be remixed…right? In this case I first began my search on Soundcloud. The only standout I could find is the one below.
What I like about this remix is the build, it’s smooth all the way through, until certain portions when the bass kicks in a bit heavier. It’s enough to add an additional element to the song without overpowering it.
Youtube offered a wider array of options, but the increased content proved to be disappointing. Honestly, there weren’t any remixes that I felt I should add to this post. None of the remixes were “right” for me/none hit my musical taste palate. On the plus side, I found a video that is basically me when “In Common” is on, so enjoy the video below for a smile.
