Alicia Keys has released new single and accompanying music video for ‘Underdog’, which will feature on the global music icon’s forthcoming seventh studio album.
The new track features writing credits from Keys as well as Ed Sheeran and was produced by the R&B songstress alongside Johnny McDaid.
The 15-time Grammy Award winner commented, “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. 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.”
