"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," said Alicia. "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."

Underdog is the latest offering from ALICIA, Keys' forthcoming seventh studio album. The previously-released songs include Time Machine, a future funk-inspired odyssey that celebrates the liberation that comes with letting go, and the sultry and vibey first single Show Me Love, a duet with GRAMMY Award-winning R&B star Miguel and meditation on the many ways we show love to one another. Show Me Love earned Keys a record-extending 11th number 1 on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs airplay chart. ALICIA will be released globally this spring.

This is just the beginning of what will be an exciting year for the multi-hyphenate. On January 26 Keys will return as the host for the GRAMMY Awards for the second consecutive year, following her critically-praised stint in 2019. The show will air on CBS. Keys' book More Myself will release on March 31, 2020, via Flatiron Publishing.
