Why We Shouldn’t Be ‘Sleeping’ On Alicia Keys

I will be the first to admit that I've taken a take-it-or-leave-it approach to most of Alicia Keys' music over the past few years. From "No One" to "It Doesn't Mean Anything," her music has just been aight for me. However, in order to be fair, I also must admit that this has been a good year for AK, proving she has the right touch after writing one of my favorite songs off of Whitney Houston's comeback effort, and her major vocal contributions to New York's new anthem. So, I still give her a chance. Her newest video, for the song "Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart," seems to be on that same page, with Alicia possessing super powers and a motorcycle that leaves neon tracks. Sweet. Nope, it doesn't make much sense, but listen... if Ms. Keys wants to touch sick puppies while prancing around in a purple body suit, then we shall let her. OK? Check the clip and hopefully you'll be like me and give Alicia her props for a solid, if not spectacular year. She's earned it. [H/T: RR ]

  1. The video makes sense, She has a gift but the gift is also her curse..She has the power to heal, but she'll never be happy because her powers kill whomever she loves. So she'll never be able to touch, fell, love them in that way

  2. @Evade Thanks for the breakdown. See what happens when I get distracted by the purple body suit? 🙂

  3. Is this supposed to be a play off of Hancock (Will Smith's superhero movie when he can't touch Charlize Theron)?

  4. Oh this is so sweet. I love it.
