Back in 2001, when Alicia Keys first burst onto the scene, few would have likely been able to predict she’d be the one to drop the most woke political track of 2016. But here we are, in the midst of one of the most trying election cycles in history, with Keys ready to wage a “Holy War” to get our society to face its most uncomfortable internal contradictions.

“If war is holy, and sex is obscene,” Keys sings in the opening lines of her new acoustic ballad, “We’ve got it twisted in this lucid dream.”

The song, which dropped Friday, only gets deeper and darker from there. It offers yet another stunning look at the creative breadth Keys is looking represent on her coming album Here.
