‘Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart’ Like Alicia Keys


We all love the '80s. Right? Well, most of us anyway. And this lengthy love affair that music has been having with synth-driven ballads and Nintendo crescendos has produced many enjoyable tracks but has it worn out its pastel-neon and asymmetrical 8-bit welcome? This new track from Alicia Keys' forthcoming album fits perfectly into that nostalgia. She's whispery in the beginning much like she was on "Like You'll Never See Me Again." That wears off, though, and the song breaks into solid beat that makes it feel like its trying to be anthemic like so many of those title tracks from movies circa that era, and the bridge is a much needed dose of contemporariness. Many will love this because many love Keys. Plus, it's much more solid than that other single she's hocking. What do you think? [H/T: MITV]

  1. It's ok. Nothing groundbreaking. Very POPISH, but doable. I still prefer "Like You'll Never See Me Again".

  2. WTF.................................I could tolerate her being homewrecker but when she starts putting out crappy music, I have to put my foot down!!!

  3. Keys affair w/ Swiss aside it's a good song. Take the song to the lab and listen to the lyrics. We've all felt like that before. Is it the new hotness? No, but it's a helluva lot better than most of the mess on the radio.
    If anything be glad there isn't any autotune

  4. Yeah, I didn't think it was *that* bad. I didn't get that special feeling I usually get when a joint is hittin' but, oh well! Every tune can't be that perfect hit!

  5. I don't think this is bad at all. a couple of spots I would tweak, but I like this better than what's out now. Like Miznay said - a LOT better than some of the crap on the radio

  7. I like the son actually. I thought it was nice and I enjoyed it.

  8. It's ok to me. Better than the rock climbing anthem. My days of clamoring for the next Alicia Keys joint are long gone though.

  9. I'm really feelin this tracq. I'm starting to get used to his new music scene. Its transforming again and i like this one betta than the last... a lot less woman bashing is going on amongst hip hop artists && a lot music is blending togetha. i feel like a new genre may be emerging... anyways still tryna forgive Ms. Keys for stealin Swizzy from his wife buh can't deny her voice is still beauitful.

  10. Her BEST to date!! The beat is CRAZY!!! She should have come out with this first...the one thats out now ( dont even know the name, not do i care to) is GARBAGE!

  11. It's soooo amazing...
