How do you top hosting the GRAMMYs? By dropping new music right after!
On Sunday night, Alicia Keys concluded her wild night playing ringleader to music’s biggest night by posting her new single, “Raise a Man.”
“Tonight was such a musical night I decided to drop a new vibe & have some fun with y’all!!!” she captioned a clip from the brand new track on Instagram.
The song is a dreamy, piano-driven melody number that handily showcases Keys’ impressive vocal range and her effortless ability to discuss both parenting and romance in a single song.
“Is it okay that I’m not independent/Is it okay that I… Is it okay that I show weakness/Is it okay that I… Is it okay to can’t wait to see you,” she sings in the chorus. “Is it okay that I… Is it okay to love a man right now.”
The black-and-white cover art fittingly showcases her two boys, Genesis, 4, and Egypt, 8, whom she shares with husband Swizz Beatz. This is Keys’ first new music since 2016. That’s when she released her sixth album, Here.
