New Song: Alicia Keys – ‘Doesn’t Mean Anything’ (New Single)

Alicia Keys - 'Doesn't Mean Anything' (New Single)
The full version of Alicia Keys’ new single ‘Doesn’t Mean Anything’ surfaced literally moments ago, more than a week before it was initially supposed to debut. In any case, it’s here. The real question here is: is it actually any good?
In short, the answer is ‘yes!’ Very much in the vein of Alicia’s previous smash’s such as ‘No One’ and ‘If I Ain’t Got You’, ‘Doesn’t Mean Anything’ is beautiful piano-driven mid-tempo ballad, with lyrics given a real vividness via Alicia’s emotive vocal delivery. If there’s one critique that can be levelled here, it’s that the song perhaps sounds quite ‘samey’ in comparison to Alicia’s past material. Still, a great cut, which sits effortless beside her past material – which for the most part are equally as great.
Hit or Miss?

    That's what you call talent! She doesn't have to serve her s** on a platter like beyonce to sell records. Real talent, enough said!

    I like it. The piano makes it sound a little like No One but I am glad the subject is different. Somtimes I hate leaks because they may not be the completed version, I would rather just hear the real version on the radio when it is first released. I hope she doesn't let Swizz produce her whole album, just a song or two.

    love it. the lyrics remind me of "if i ain't got you" a little, though.
