Despite having a hard-hitting history at retail, Alicia Keys‘ latest album ‘HERE’ launched softly last week.

Though better than expected, that’s not saying a whole lot given how shocking the first batch of numbers were.
Still, diminished commercial clout aside, Alicia remains a premium talent. One, who with the right material and moves, can bounce-back. Perhaps not with this project (as the concept of slow sellers is all but extinct), but with its follow-up.
Put simply, ‘HERE’ could serve as a re-introduction, a “get it wrong to get it right” return. At least we hope.
