Alicia Keys, Diamond Platinumz: Wasted Energy – Review
Tanzanian music maestro Diamond Platinumz features on Alicia Keys` latest album single Wasted Energy, from her album, ALICIA.
The single is a fusion of reggae and Afro-Soul.
Wasted Energy interestingly, speaks of a lover in a relationship with another. Always and intentionally considerate to the feelings and desires of the other party.
With countless promises broken, the lover realizes that its time to move on even after attempts to stay there.
The production work is catchy and for the reggae and Afro-Soul lovers, this is a tune you are to love and bob your head to. Diamond Platinumz vocals are towards the end of the song.
This is a very BIG issue!! He could have sung a little longer in addition to making an appearance! One could wonder whether Diamond Platimumz`s relationship history is what made him the perfect candidate to feature on this single!
Overall, Wasted Energy has great vibes and is a song worth looking out for!
