"New Day"

Alicia Keys again touches on the theme of change with this superstar collaboration between Dr. Dre and her husband Swizz Beatz. The inspirational lyrics can get trite at times, falling back on some earlier Alicia clichés. But the epic, military beat is probably the hardest-hitting she's ever sung over and is another example of the album's overall excellent drum programming. No word on what this song's release means for the alternate (and better) version featuring rhymes from Dr. Dre and 50 Cent, reported to be part of Fif's new album, Street King Immortal
