R&B superstar Alicia Keys returns with the brand new single “Underdog”. Keys wrote the song along with Ed Sheeran, and she also produced it along with Johnny McDaid. A visual for the song also released today which was produced by Wendy Morgan.
She adds about the song:
“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.”
“Show Me Love” earned Keys a record-extending 11th number 1 on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs airplay chart. The new album ALICIA is set to release this Spring.
