Alicia Keys has premiered new music and it’s great. After all, it’s been four years since she released Girl on Fire.
Disney’s new release Queen of Katwa, starring Academy Award victor Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo, has partnered with 15-time Grammy Award victor Alicia Keys, debuting the original song “Back to Life’”. Well, today (September 2) marks another new song from Keys, but it’s not associated with any album she’s now working on. It’s a curious song that spans genres across its almost five minute length. The ballad is indeed powerful, and Keys’ voice shines throughout.
“Back To Life” is like the lifeline of the movie. This animated film for kids will be out in the theaters on 30 September.
“It’s about being who you are, and not letting anybody tell you who you should be”, said Keys who even got the hosts to take off their make up. When the song opens up, you hear Alicia Keys singing with only an acoustic guitar in the background.
