"Ay, It's a New Day, It's a New Day"

There are few artists I have more respect for than @aliciakeys. She's a role model on a lot of levels and you won't find an artist make more beautiful music than her. Like a lot of her fans, I thought the introspective video about (below) she released this week to reach out to fans and communicate how she's grown as a person the last year to be really cool to listen to...
Simply put, Alicia is just a genuinely happy and inspirational person, which makes you want to root for her success.

What's most notable about her new single, New Day, is the difference in tempo. Previously, her music has always been carried by her legendary skills as both a pianist and vocalist. I say previously because now that she's married to @THEREALSWIZZZ, it's not a surprise to see her collaborating with him on a track that is driven more by a traditional Hip Hop drum beat. Different isn't always bad and I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt on the track below. It's a feel good, change is good transition track that a lot of people can use for motivation if they so choose. Bout as breezy of a summer track as it gets...#BreezesCool100DegreeTemps
