Alicia Keys Drops New Single Underdog

Thursday, 09 January 2020 Written by Helen Payne

Alicia Keys has dropped a new single.

Underdog is the latest cut from the global music icon’s seventh album, ‘ALICIA’, which is yet to have a release date.

Ed Sheeran shares writing credits for the track, and his influence is easily recognisable in the addictive main hook and almost rapped verses. The song’s video showcases various underdogs, and makes a poignant note that things that can change by taking action and being kind to others.

The 15 time Grammy Award winner stated:

“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.”
