With a glittery beat and a simple piano melody, Alicia Keys’ new track “Sweet F’in Love” was revealed by her husband, producer Swizz Beats last night, but he doesn’t seem to have had a hand in it. The familiar bounce is KAYTRANADA’s doing, and while the song has just one lyric (plus some of Keys’ spoken word) it’s a lush tune. (Note: Keys only uses the real F-word once at the end.) The sparkly, lithe song is a little different from those on her November release Here, but of course boasts Keys’ unmistakable honeyed tones.
