With a bangin’ bass, glimmering piano and an acoustic guitar, Alicia Keys provides a whole-hearted ode to her family in her new single ‘Blended Family (What You Do For Love).’
In the song, the face of the “no makeup” movement opens up about the peaks and valleys of creating a family with her husband Swizz Beatz and her stepson, whose mother is R&B songstress Mashonda.
Speaking on the cut, which serves as the new lead release from her sixth album ‘Here,’ Keys says:
“It means so much to me and our whole family. The understanding, compassion and support we’ve found is a powerful testament to the healing that comes when we choose love. Especially for the kids… the most important part of our lives. Celebrating @mashondatifrere for our commitment to each other with support and true growth.
It’s the most open the 15-time Grammy winner has been about her private life, aspects of which have played out quite publicly.
Take a listen below…
Kudos to Ms. Keys for “going there.”
From an artistic standpoint, it must be quite liberating and from an image perspective felt as if it was becoming a necessary move.
As for the actual song, it packs in a lot yet does so in a way that could easily be at home on the radio.
Is the hit she’s been searching for?
