“Smooth” and sentimental visuals coming from Alicia off of her album, Element of Freedom: Deluxe Edition (Incl. Bonus Tracks + Bonus DVD) (2009). Writers Keys, Jeff Bhasker, and others created a retro #80s ballad feel contributing to the Contemporary R&B genre. This groove received mainstream airplay in the U.S. and across the seas in the U.K.. Check out the vid of Alicia putting her dynamic vocals on full display.

“There are those among us who are blessed with the power to save what is loved by another. But powerless to use this blessing for love themselves”.
