Global music icon, 15-time GRAMMY Award winner and returning GRAMMY Awards host Alicia Keys, released her new single and visual for “Underdog” today, via RCA Records. The new song features writing credits from both Ed Sheeran and Keys and was produced by Keys and Johnny McDaid (Ed Sheeran, P!nk). The music video was directed by Wendy Morgan.

GMA provided an exclusive first look at the video this morning and the full video was premiered on MTV Live, MTV U and BET Soul as well as on ViacomCBS’s Times Square billboards in NYC. The song premiered first on iHeartRadio and is currently available to purchase and stream across digital platforms here. The “Underdog” official music video is available to watch here.

“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,” said Alicia. “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.”

 

“Underdog” is the latest offering from ALICIA, Keys’ forthcoming seventh studio album. The previously-released songs include “Time Machine” a future funk-inspired odyssey that celebrates the liberation that comes with letting go, and the sultry and vibey first single “Show Me Love,” a duet with GRAMMY Award winning R&B star Miguel and meditation on the many ways we show love to one another. “Show Me Love” earned Keys a record-extending 11th number 1 on the Billboard  Adult R&B Songs airplay chart.  ALICIA will be released globally this spring.

 

This is just the beginning in what will be an exciting year for the multi hyphenate. On January 26 Keys will return as the host for the GRAMMY Awards for the second consecutive year, following her critically-praised stint in 2019. The show will air on CBS. Keys’ book More Myself will release on March 31, 2020 via Flatiron Publishing.

Music and skate culture come together as SPINALL, Summer Walker, DJ Snake, and Äyannalink up for their impressive collaboration, “Power.” The global union of legendary musicians is a must-watch, as Walker and Äyanna’s sonorous vocals glide against the Afro-pop production.
Directed by Charlie Buhler of Doomsday, the video features fast-paced footage from the highly anticipated Flipper’s Skate Heist film: masked skaters swipe a pair of exclusive roller skates, while SPINALL, Summer, DJ Snake and Äyanna are stationed at the renowned Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace.
“Power (Remember Who You Are)” is the soundtrack of the forthcoming film, which will be released in the lead-up to the opening of Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace’s flagship roller skating rink in London. Watch “Power (Remember Who You Are)” HERE.
Says Äyanna: “Working with the skaters was deeply inspiring. It was an honour to share the space with them, and everyone on set was so passionate about the song and project as a whole. Being apart of the directors vision was humbling and a real honour. It felt amazing to be included in a culturally significant project.”
The stellar lineup includes an all-star cast of producers, including SPINALL, DJ Snake, Nicholas “Unknown Nick” Audino, and The Eggman. This superb cast enlisted legendary Dr. Dre, who mixed the starry track. The song is also executive produced by Jimmy Iovine, and LVRN’s Tunde Balogun and Justice Baiden. The newly formed alliance on “Power (Remember Who You Are)” teases what’s to come in the upcoming short film Flipper’s Skate Heist — a wild adventure mixing the blending roots of amapiano with skate culture.
