Alicia Keys – Underdog [MP3 Download]
Alicia Keys has released a new song titled “Underdog.” Kicking off the new year, Keys delivers a heavy tune on her latest single release which is off her forthcoming album, ALICIA.
Available for download and streaming, the track also arrives with it’s official music video which shows Alicia Keys and her posse encouraging underdogs to “rise up.”
It focuses on a man selling CDs on the side of the road and a girl in a hijab going to prom with her friends.
She was walking in the street
Looked up and noticed
He was nameless
He was homeless
She asked him his name and
Told him what hers was
He gave her a story
With a glint in his eye
“Some people may think of the word underdog as a negative word, but I see it as a powerful word representing people who may be underestimated and yet still rise to the challenge and exceed expectations,” Keys said in a statement. “I love this song so much because it’s about real life and real people and our experiences. We’ve all been in a place in our lives where we’ve had to defy the odds. It’s never easy. One of my favorite lyrics in the song is, ‘They say I would never make it but I was built to break the mold.’ I don’t think there’s a person on the planet that hasn’t felt that way”
