Alicia Keys’ opaque production on “Not Even the King” is meant to play a secondary role, as the depth of her lyrics are the lead note of emphasis. Similar to “If I Was Your Woman,” the stripped down record challenges where people should place value in life. This formula lead to a Grammy Award nomination in 2006 for Mrs. Keys.
“Not Even the King” will appear on Keys’ forthcoming fifth studio ‘Girl on Fire.’ She previously released the promo track “New Day” and the lead single/album title track “Girl On Fire.”
