Sales Predictions To Alicia Keys’ “Here”/ Teases Lesbian Rumors In New Track
While performing in Times Square will be a memorable experience for Alicia Keys, perhaps the predictions on her recent LP, “Here” won’t be. HDD reported that the latest effort is set to sell 38-42k in pure sales. The singer-songwriter is competing with Bon Jovi and The Chainsmokers.
On the new album, a track titled “Where Do We Begin Now” turned heads, as she sings about experiencing feelings for the same sex. Keys dealt with lesbian rumors when she debuted due to her appearance, which has drastically changed.
While the track isn’t radio friendly, it would’ve drew major attention due to the lyrical content (especially with a visual). Weigh in on the song below:
Keys is a storyteller, therefore the song may not be pertaining to her. Regardless of that, the song contains shock value, which this album campaign could use. As of now, the media would assume she's singing about herself. Sure, it would've been a controversial move, but as the saying goes, “All publicity is good publicity.”
