Alicia Keys – That’s What’s Up

On her birthday, Alicia Keys is giving a gift to her fans in the form of new music. “That’s What’s Up” is a motivational, soul-filled melody with an emphasis on giving thanks. “Time after time you’ve lifted me up / Lord knows you’ll never let me down / Now that’s what’s up,” Keys belts, to the tune of sparse piano chords and a sample off of Kanye West’s “Low Lights.” It’s not the first time this month that we’ve had our spirits lifted by Keys—the singer gave an inspirational speech and performance last Saturday at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C.

Listen to the new track below for an instant pep-talk.
