Is Alicia Keys Giving Us ‘Anything’ New To Love?

Yesterday, we mentioned Alicia Keys a lot, detailing her visit to Today in the aftermathglow of Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards as well as the premiere of the video for “Million Dollar Bill,” the song she penned for Whitney Houston. Also this week, a new song by Keys was released, the midtempo “Doesn’t Mean Anything,” which will serve as the first single from her upcoming album due for release this November. Speaking to MTV, Keys said the song’s “sound is very different — it almost feels like you’re flying. It takes you there. It has that piano, heavy-drum feeling. But the song touches you in this way. You dream of having all these things, you dream of going all these places. But what’s the point of doing that, having that, if the one you want to be there isn’t with you?”

Well, alright. Upon first listen, it’s a cool joint. I think I might give it more of a chance based on how excited AK is about it. She seemed downright giddy while discussing it as if it were the first record she’s ever made. It puts me in the mind of her previous album’s lead single, “No One,” and just like that track (which I came to like a lot), it’ll probably have to grow on me. Take a listen and let us know if it means anything to you.
