Once no stranger to dominating the Billboard Hot 100, ‘In Common’ singer Alicia Keys has seen her last two albums have one glaring stat in common; they both went to chart battle with no Hot 100 top 40 singles to precede them.
While her critically acclaimed 2016-released album, ‘Here,’ didn’t boast any charting singles, its follow-up – the self-titled ‘ALICIA’ – fared better as it at least nabbed two Gold certifications courtesy of the Miguel-assisted ‘Show Me Love’ (#90 peak) and ‘Underdog’ (#69 peak) respectively.
Powered by the relative wins on the Hot 100, ‘ALICIA’ – Keys’ seventh studio LP – is heading to digital shelves with some of her most palpable buzz in recent years thanks to positive press garnered from its tunes shedding light on social issues like the global health crisis, #BlackLivesMatter, and more (see: ‘Perfect Way to Die,’ ‘Love Looks Better,’ ‘Good Job,’ ‘Underdog,’ and more).
Is that hype enough to lift her to the top of the Billboard 200?
