Alicia Keys Goes Makeup-Free In Promo For New Single ‘In Common’

Alicia Keys X In Common

Music veteran Alicia Keys lit the music world on fire today with the debut of her first single in years, “In Common“. The Illangelo-produced tune, which features a mix of R&B and Latin vibes, was released ahead of her scheduled Saturday Night Live! appearance this weekend.

Before even pressing play to groove to the sultry tune, we couldn’t help but notice a makeup-free Keys on the cover, rocking a front-knot headwrap and classic door knocker earrings. Classic girl next door beauty.

As much as we love to see the glam side of our favorite celebs, there is always something refreshing and empowering in seeing them barefaced and radiant. Not only does it show they are real (because contour sure does lie), it also reveals a sense of self love we all should be embracing.

Are you as inspired as we are by Keys’ new cover?
