Today has been a big day for music with new album releases from hip-hop and musical heavyweights Alicia Keys, Common and Tinashe. As an agency that works within the music space, and lives and breathes the industry, we know a thing or two about what makes a good album. Check out your weekend playlist below.

With her sixth studio album, titled HERE, Alicia Keys is back with her incredible soulful melodies. It includes 16 tracks and features collaborations with artists including ASAP Rocky and Pharrell. She spoke to Rolling Stone about  “It just cohesively speaks so clearly to where I am, and where we are in the world.” Check out Alicia’s new tunes, streaming on Spotify, here.
