"In Common" is a song by American singer and songwriter Alicia Keys, recorded for her upcoming untitled sixth studio album. The song was written by Keys, Illangelo, Tayla Parks and Billy Walsh, and produced by Illangelo. It is a departure from her R&B sound, having a tropical music and dancehall sound, with Latin beat, Afrobeat instrumental, collage of electronic beats, tropicalia-infused rhythms and icy drum patterns as its main instrumentation. Keys uses a hushed tone during the track. Lyrically, "In Common" talks about a dysfunctional kind of love story, and how the partners are similar, despite their faults.
The song received positive reviews from critics, who considered it a catchy and hypnotic single, while being labelled a possible summer hit. Keys gave the first televised performance of the track on Saturday Night Live.
