Alicia Keys: Love is Blind

Alicia Keys Passionati

Brand new release today – Alicia Keys’ fifth studio album, “The Element of Freedom”. Frankly, this song just struck me immediately. Its got a cool vibe and its indicative of the vintage soul vibe fused within a cool hip-hop production. Recently, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Alicia said: “What I wanted with ‘Love is Blind’ is to let you know immediately that this was a different landscape. It automatically calls attention to that. It’s true they have two totally different energies. The whole record has different values and peaks. From a long time ago, I find it’s just so important to do the music that feels good. If you think too long on who’s going to like what, you’re going to waste so much time. It’s important to go with what feels good.

My music comes from many, many, many places. My emotions, my feelings, my thoughts, and conversations I have with people I know who influence me. Also by looking at the world around me and feeling the energy of the world. It comes from so many places. It couldn’t just be one. I feel that’s what so great about it. People can make it their own story. People come to me and say, ‘That’s a heartbreak song.’ But to me, it could be that it’s a song that lets me say how much I appreciate people that I love and have in my life.”
