Alicia Keys Drops New Video ‘Raise A Man’
Capitalizing off her 2019 Grammy award hosting momentum, yesterday, Alicia Keys dropped a new video.
The singer-songwriter announced the new track and video via her Instagram account. She shared a snippet of the video, and wrote, “I just dropped something for y’all! I was in the studio and I wanted to VIBEEEEE out! My friends were there, my Gen was there!! The energy just felt so right in the room that I wanted to share it with y’all. Can you feel me!??? Check out the video vibes on my youtube, link in bio! (Check my story)”
The Bill Stein-directed video features Keys doing what she does best, sitting at a piano singing to an absent lover. “Every time you’re around me, I feel virgin all over again. And every time you’re around me. How can I renege? Boy, I just need your hand,” she sings. “Is it okay that I’m not independent? Is it okay that I show weakness?”
Surrounded by her friends in a retro Tommy Hilfiger jacket, Keys then picks up her son, Genesis and spins him around while snapping her fingers to the track

The singer’s two sons, Egypt and Genesis are both featured on the cover for the single.
