Rainy Days and Meowdays

While the weather is storming here....
something in the wind isn't right,
I'm talking about alicia keys new song "New Day" 




Whenever i see alicia keys ...
i really see a silent quiet yet effect revolutionist of pop music ...


From "Karma" where she shouts how gravity works...
From "No one" where she startled that no man/woman is an island....
And of-course who can ever forget this...



When alicia shouts "NEW YORKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK " 
while doing her thing on the piano on the busy side of the road...
It honestly shows how you can be fearless and make a quiet yet classy revolution
without rallying and strutting around town like ke$ha and Adam lambert 
that looks like they just clear out the sale of make up on walmart discount bin.






The point is ....there's nothing wrong with alicia's new song 
and that's why it's wrong...
the vulnerability-slash-subtle fluorescence light that she used to show is MIA.


Sure the song has rihanna's hook,
beyonce's background big production noise 
and katy perry sex appeal...


But if you strip it all of ...
all you hear is alicia reminding everyone that it's a new day,
Don't we have calendars and rebecca black for that?
