  1. ; this would not be a single for the mtirojay of acts. The label would probably reject it as not being as such.I think I have told the story before here but I have gone up against Alicia specifically at radio and she cannot be beat (though not because I wanted to we have ties and her people are great and I have nothing but great things to say about them). Her name plus her budget will knock another artist with a more radio friendly single and hit record (but with a lesser name) right off of the playlist. So I expect this to be heard on radio regularly even though it is nowhere near “Unthinkable” from a hit standpoint.
