Description :

Alicia is the seventh studio album by American R&B singer and songwriter Alicia Keys. It was released by RCA Records on September 18, 2020. Written and produced largely by Keys, the album also features songwriting and production contributions from Swizz Beatz, Ludwig Göransson, Rob Knox, Johnny McDaid, and The-Dream, among others.

The album was originally scheduled to be released on March 20, 2020, then May 15, before being delayed further due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Seven singles were released from Alicia, including the Miguel duet "Show Me Love", "Time Machine", "Underdog", and "So Done", featuring Khalid. Keys is scheduled to embark on Alicia - The World Tour in 2021 after the 2020 dates of the tour were postponed due to the pandemic.

Musically, Alicia departs from the loose experimentation of Keys' previous album, Here (2016). Instead, the music revisits the styles of her earlier work, including piano-based ballads and bass drum-driven R&B songs, albeit with less emphatic hooks. The album's direction, which Keys describes as "genreless", is oriented toward evoking a particular mood rather than conforming to a singular sound. According to The New York Times chief pop critic Jon Pareles, the music "often hollows itself out around her, opening deep bass chasms or surrounding sparse instrumentation with echoey voids". While deeming the album often a work of contemporary R&B, Helen Brown of The Independent says it conveys traditional soul melodies "through some stranger—and certainly more eclectic—sounds than she’s tried before".[6] In the process, individual songs incorporate elements of particular styles, including downtempo R&B ("Show Me Love"), old-fashioned funk ("Time Machine"), folk-influenced soul ("Gramercy Park"), dub ("Wasted Energy"), Caribbean music ("Underdog"), and country ("Gramercy Park"). A section of the album's middle tracks substitute piano for acoustic guitar within a more free-form style of neo soul. While none of the album's songs approach a fast tempo, "Love Looks Better" is produced in a lofty pop-soul style.
