Kenyan DJ Works With Alicia Keys on The Remix of “In Common”.

Alicia Keys recorded “In Common” for her untitled sixth studio album that she’s currently working on. Seems Keys has been listening to a lot of African sounds since she posted a video of herself dancing to Wizkid’s Ojuelegba while being filmed by her husband Swizz Beats as In Common has a tropical music and dancehall sound, with an Afrobeat instrumental and electronic beats.

Now just a couple of days ago Alicia released remixes to the track and that included DJ Expect’s, a Kenyan DJ based in the U.S.

The Xpect Remix has an Afro Electronic sound that is quite catchy and could easily become a club favorite. Word is, Alicia Keys, Sony/RCA records reached out to him a few weeks ago for a chance to produce a remix for the album.

Alicia also reached out to Black Coffee for the remix. He won Best International Act Africa at this year’s BET Awards.

Swizz Beats ran a poll online on which remix was the best and Xpect led with 57% followed closely by Black Coffee with 30%. Here’s hoping that means good news for DJ Xpect.
