“New Day” marks the return of Alicia Keys post motherhood and the single leads into her twelfth year since signing with Clive Davis and launching her music career with the release of ‘Songs in A Minor.’ She worked with her husband, Swizz Beatz, on the up-tempo rhythm as she balanced the tone with her aspiration vocals to take the top spot. “Much of the music that you’re going to hear is talking about what that feels like, what we’re all going through, all of us …That empowerment, that freedom is definitely something that’s reflected in this album,” said Keys.
Singer/Actress Keke Palmer slips one spot back to number two holding off threats from a group of veterans.
New entries into Singersroom’s Top 10 Most Popular Singles are Kelly Rowland and Mint Condition. Rowland found a winning formula for her solo career when she teamed up with Lil Wayne for the hit single “Motivation.” As she readies a new album, she reconnected with the Young Money CEO for “Ice” in hope to equal the past success.
Mint Condition is seven albums deep since dropping their first album in 1991. The group is prepping their forthcoming record ‘The Speed of Life’ with the release of first single “Believe In Us.” The eclectic track is what the group promised, a melting pot with Jazz, R&B, Rock, funk, which can easily clash with each other, but the veterans musicality allows them to mold influences into sweet harmony.
