Living icon and world-renowned Renaissance woman, Alicia Keys. Is bringing very powerful and inspiring vibes of love that we could all use right now. With her powerfully inspiring and anthemic latest single, Love Looks Better. A very loud, passionate and high-energy record with a very sneaky catchy melody. That will have everyone singing loudly along to the inspiring and anthemic lyrics/chorus of, “Can we touch for a second. Be us for a second. No matter what I give it to. My love looks better on you.”
Easily one of the best records, not only on Keys just recently released long-awaited and highly-anticipated new seventh solo album, ALICIA. But one of the best records released this year or of the past several years. Keys debuted yesterday through Vevo, the very powerful and inspiring new Gina Prince-Bythewood-directed video for the record. That spotlights the fight for racial injustice.
The powerful new visual opens with Alicia filming a music video in the streets. Where she comes across participants of a Black Lives Matter march. Seeing a young Black girl driving by with her fist in the air. Alicia follows her by car and chases her barefoot through the streets of New York City. Stopping to grab a pair of Timberlands hanging from a power line. Alicia now decked in jeans, Timbs and her signature braids. Gives off that classic early 2000s R&B vibes. Which first introduced us to her nearly two decades ago.
The rest of the powerfully inspiring new visual. Finding Alicia playing her piano in the middle of the street. As she sings and dances with her very loving and infectious smile, the very catchy and anthemic tune. The clip also sees other people dancing and having joys of fun, as well as love. With Alicia herself even meeting up with the young girl on a stoop. As they share smiles and dance moves, as well as so much joy and love we could all use right now. That show once again why Alicia is still such an icon and positively inspiring person of great love, joy and messages. That we could all use more than ever now. With this video, the record and whole album being even more proof of it.
