The popularity of the reality television format hasn’t always translated into the best of sales outcomes for its tenants (see:  Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Shakira, etc.), but that doesn’t – nor should it – stop them from trying.

New Song: Alicia Keys – ‘Blended Family [What You Do For Love] (ft. ASAP Rocky)’

Songbird Hatches Lead Single From 6th Album ‘Here’

alicia-keys-blended-family-tgj

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.

Cop a gander of Alicia Keys!

The singer continues her make-up-free comeback campaign a-front of Time Out Magazine New York. 

It’s the latest in a long line of promotional spots lined up for the star’s return to the spotlight.

Earlier this summer it appeared as though all the media moments were leading up to an album release. However, when lead single ‘In Common’ failed to ignite the charts, the volume on album chatter was turned down. All the way down.

Until now.
