Alicia Keys estrena “I Am Here (We Are Here)” y escribe una carta de reflexión sobre la situación mundial actual | Preparando su sexto álbum

Diciembre será una mes importante en la vida de Alicia Keys. Primero, porque nacerá su segundo hijo, y segundo, porque “parirá” casi a la vez su sexto álbum, el cual vuelve a ser, según sus palabras, su disco más personal y lo mejor que ha hecho nunca. O sea, como “Britney Jean” para Britney Spears, como “Artpop” para Lady Gaga o como cualquiera de sus discos para Chenoa. ¿Será cierto en su caso? De momento pinta muy bien, y es que ya podemos escuchar un primer adelanto titulado “I Am Here (We Are Here)”, en el que la cantante demuestra una vez más su enorme talento, y con el que podemos comprobar tres cosas:

1. Las trenzas con conchas vuelven a estar de moda. Después de quitarse la peluca en “Brand New Me” y asustarnos con su pelo afro a lo Rosa-Pelocho, la cantante vuelve al look de su debut “Songs in a mirror”. La Asamblea Fashion NETP aprueba el cambio, aunque reivindica a la que fue la verdadera precursora e ideadora del peinado: Monica Geller Belén Esteban.

“From San Blas to the Bronx”

2. Alicia Keys, concienciada y solidaria. El fenomeno Sor Cristina no dejó indiferente a la cantante. Alicia no se ha hecho monja, pero ha creado un nuevo himno humanitario (que el “We are the world” se había quedado muy desfasado) y ha acompañado el estreno de la canción con una carta de reflexión sobre la situación de sitios como Gaza, Israel o Nigeria, y sobre la violencia, la discriminación, el racismo, la pobreza y los muchos problemas del mundo actual. Bien por ella.

“The day I wrote this song, I was sitting in a circle of people of all ages and we were asked, “Why are you here.” Why am I here?? This really hit me on a deep level. I realized no one had ever asked me that question before.
As I prepare to give birth to a new child, I can’t help and think about the world I’m bringing my baby into. No matter where we come from, when we see the state of the world today, we can all feel the growing frustration and desire to make a difference. And we all have a voice – we just need to know how to make it heard.
I have a vision that I believe is more than a dream, that I know can be our reality.
I believe in an empowered world community built on the true meaning of equality – where we are all considered one people, regardless of race, religion, gender, zip code, belief system or sexual orientation.
I believe all of our voices should be heard, so that our representation reflects our population. We need our leadership to reflect an equal balance of the gifts that both men and women have to offer.
I believe in a world where every child born receives a quality education – where their unique gifts are nurtured so that they may be a beneficial presence in this world.
I believe in mutual respect and cooperation among all peoples and all nations. It is time to end all forms of racial injustice for our black brothers and sisters and all people of color.
I believe in an end to the prison industrial complex in America and a renewed justice system that is based on fairness and truth.
I believe in universal global health care based on Integrative Medicine, so that our bodies are acknowledged and treated as one system, and we can help control the spread of diseases like AIDS, Malaria, TB and Ebola.
I believe we have an ability to end poverty, oppression, and hopelessness that often breeds despair, terror, and violence.
I believe in common sense gun laws that serve to protect children and families and society from unnecessary violence.
I believe in Peace & Love & Unity.
I believe that this vision can be a reality.
And, it’s not about me. It’s about WE.
Together we can give birth to a kinder and more peaceful world for ALL children.
Our souls were brought together so that we can love each other sister, brother. We Are Here. We are here for all of us. That’s why #WeAreHere.
Sent with Light,
Alicia Keys”

3. ¿Back to basics? Sabemos que la cantante ha estado trabajando con Pharell Williams (como medio planeta) para este nuevo álbum, aunque en este adelanto no se percibe el sonido del productor, y tiene más de “Fallin'” con un poco de “No One”. ¿Significa esto que volverá a sus inicios? Este nuevo tema nos encanta, así que por nosotros, adelante.

Letra / Lyrics

We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
That’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here

Bombs over Baghdad
Tryna get something we never had
Let’s start with a good dad
It’s so real but it’s so sad
And while we burning this incense
We gonna pray for the innocent
Cause right now it don’t make sense
Right now it don’t make sense

Let’s talk about Chitown
Let’s talk about Gaza
Let’s talk about, let’s talk about Israel
Cause right now it is real
Let’s talk about, let’s talk Nigeria
And the mass hysteria, yeah
Our souls are brought together
So that we can love each other, brother

We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
That’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here

No guns made in Harlem
But yet crime is a problem
He wanna shot ‘em, wanna rob ‘em
Single mother, where they come from
How we gonna save the nation
With no support for education
Cause right now it don’t make sense
Right now it don’t make sense

Let’s talk about our part
My heart to your heart
Let’s talk about, let’s talk about living
Had enough of dying
Not what we all about
Let’s do more giving, do more forgiving, yeah
Our souls are brought together
So that we could love each other, sister

We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
That’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
That’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh

We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
That’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
That’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
That’s why we are here, why we are here
