Alicia Keys Inspires and celebrate the many people who've been underestimated on her latest Ed Sheeran penned single, "Underdog."
“They say I would never make it but I was built to break the mold," sings Keys. "You’ll find out someday soon enough, you will rise up!", she continues.
About the new song Keys adds, "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.”
The music video sees the multi-Grammy winner spotlights individuals (like hustlers, sons and single mothers) who were counted out.
Keys’ seventh studio album, ALICIA, is scheduled to arrive later this year.
