New Song: Alicia Keys – ‘Back To Life’

Published: Friday 2nd Sep 2016 by Sam

Alicia Keys isn’t quite ready to serve up her long-awaited comeback album, but that hasn’t stopped the flow of new music.

Fresh from cooing ‘In Common,’ the 15-time Grammy winner belts ‘Back To Life’ from Disney‘s ‘Queen of Katwe’ movie (which stars Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo). 

Both rousing and inspirational, the moving number awaits below…

While the repetitive chorus prevents this from being anything more than a soundtrack song, the production has many interesting layers.

One has to wonder if this was lifted from the recording sessions for Keys’ upcoming LP. Because, it’s consistent with the haunting, hard-hitting sound present on songs such as ‘In Common’ and ‘Hallelujah.’

      Still tapping my feet, waiting for the return of the alicia keys who slayed on Lessons Learned, If I ain’t got you, Butterflz, Diary, Fallen. You know the passionate, piano playing braids having grammy winner. Where is she when we need a good RnB piano ballad?

      Chile…I about gave up on her. She got a TV show that just premiered yesterday on Spike and she didn’t do any kind of promo for it. So I bet not hear any mess from her later trying to defend why it flopped. She’s know Jimmy Fallon, Ellen, Kimmel and them other people, call them up! She also has/had a bop on her hand with Telepathy and again didn’t do any kind of promo for it. I’m so tired of her lazy as antics! She half-assed promoted Bionic and Burlesque. Completely ignored Lotus (which is fine cause that album sucked). I’m just amiss with her! When she was with Jordan Bratman she never had this problem! This Matt dude is dragging her down.
