I missed me some Alicia Keys.
If Alicia Keys decided to hang up the mic today, I would have her in my R&B hall-of-fame. With that being said, I believe everything she does from here on out is house money. “Show Me Love,” Alicia’s latest purchase with house money, is a gem, as on it, listeners are treated to this duet between herself and Miguel that is smooth, sensual and extremely romantic. Personally, I love how the song primarily boasts present-day vibes, but at the same time, Aaliyah/90’s R&B vibes, too (I’m hearing a slight splash of Aaliyah’s “I Don’t Wanna” track from back in the day in this song).
On the low, Alicia has reinvented herself quite a bit throughout her career.
