New single from AK with A$AP Rocky off her upcoming sixth album HERE. Reminds me a lot of Nelly Furtado's Turn off the Light, which is a good thing, of course.

Alicia Keys wrote:My new song Blended Family (What You Do For Love) will be available everywhere at Midnight. I’m so excited for you to hear this song. 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 Mashonda for our commitment to each other with support and true growth.
Available on TIDAL and all good streaming services.

True. And maybe that's the problem for me.

I don't really care for her addressing #that situation. She should've held her ground like a bad bish. This makes her look corny.

But sonically, the song is cool.

She fell in love with Swizz Beatz while he was still married. Prolly they had an affair.
Mashonda called her a homewrecker.

Not strong enough for a single but creative topic.

She did an excellent performance on X Factor. She showed them the difference between a singer and an artist.
