Alicia Keys has just released a remixed album for her single In Common in which she collaborated with Kenya’s DJ Xpect in the Xpect remix. The upbeat song has an Afro Electronic sound that Xpect is popular for. According to the u.s based DJ, Alicia Keys, Sony/RCA records reached out to him a few weeks ago for a chance to produce a remix for the album. They say when it rains it pours, this news came in the midst of his announcing the release of his debut album “Nomadic Soul” which has gone live on iTunes too and to top it all off, he will be celebrating his birthday this Sunday and am sure in a grand way seeing as there’s more to celebrate about. The humbled and grateful DJ is definitely on to bigger and better achievements. Alicia Keys has been getting in touch with the African roots seeing that she also reached out to recent BET award’s best international act Africa category winner DJ Black coffee to produce on the In Common remix album. It’s definitely a win for Kenya and Africa as a whole for the recognition of its unique sound and lively beat.
