After this photo surfaced of the two in the studio earlier this fall we all knew something was coming. That something turned out to be a brand new song on Alicia Keys’ album “Girl On Fire” titled “One Thing” that was written by Frank Ocean.

Listen to the new song below and check out the lyrics as well. Buy the song on iTunes.

What do you guys think? The last writing credit Frank Ocean got was for Brandy’s “Scared of Beautiful“, which he originally recorded a demo for himself years ago.

What, where am I
Whats life like on a train
Nobody there knows your name
As your decision changed
Do you wish that I came
I thought youd pick me up from work
I waited for your truck for half hour
I know you said you gonna
But I never thought youd leave

This one thing that was made for us
Chasing us, saving us
I take one thing over everything
I take that thing over anybody

Square face and puppy eyes
Found out they never lie
Your old man in the sky left you a house with a yard
But you went away, a different try, found a place that’s your size
Too good to finish life here with me
I couldnt get you to say
Why you wouldnt let me come
Whats your re-simple aint
And they shouldnt hurt like duh

This one thing is made for us
Wont stay with us, it aint saving us
But i’ll take one thing over everything
I’ll take that thing over anybody

Baby hold it off clear
I need a complement, just a touch from a friend
I need a gentle world
I need your company
Ill keep

One thing that was made for us
Chasing us, saving us
I take one thing over everything
I take that thing over anybody

I take one thing over everything
I take that thing over anybody
Anything
Take one thing
