New Music: Alicia Keys – ‘Not Even the King’

Alicia Keys

Fresh off her performance at the Stand Up to Cancer benefit last night, Alicia Keys debuts the studio version of her new song “Not Even the King.” Over a piano-driven melody, the Grammy winner sings about wealth of the heart and mind and not the pocket on the powerful record off her upcoming album Girl on Fire, due November 27.

“They can’t afford what we got, not even the king,” she sings.

Indulge in Alicia’s priceless riches.

    @A Realist, This homewrecking bit*h cannot sing anymore. She has really lost it, that’s called Karma for sleeping & stealing married men. She was horrible on the VMA’s Thank god the Queen Minaj saved the day for her. Ms. Keys have a seat girl! Done!

    @MinajRules2012, Y must have a really sad and miserable life, so sad for you. Alicia Keys is a blessed woman and she will remain so and for you to figure that out you would need to know what love is about but clearly you do not know. Go seek some mental help for your issues that you have with Alicia because they are YOUR ISSUES, NOT HERS. You sad, sad human being.

    I’m not a fan of Alicia “Alex” Off-Keys but this song is beautiful, nonetheless. I’m tired of her with this formula, though. It’s getting boring, samey and predictable.

    WELCOME BACK ALICIA !!!

    I GOT ADMIT SOMETHING IAM BETWEEN TWO FEELING

    TO BE SUPRISE AND TO BE CONFORT

    I MEAN I LOVE ALICIA KEYS WHEN SHE’S SOULFULL BUT I WOULD LOVE TO SEE TAKE A MUSICAL ROAD UNEXPECTED. (OUTSIDE OF POP AND MAINSTREAM GENRE) I THINK SHE WAS THE KIND OF ARTIST BUT OBVIOUSLY IM WRONG.

    SHES’S A GREAT GREAT ARTIST, A LITTLE TO
    PREDICTABLE AND IAM OK WITH THAT.

    NICE SONG.

    Great song. I mean GREAT song. I do love Alicia when she is at her best. And whoever said she can’t sing is a fool. You don’t have to sing like Whitney Houston to be a great singer!

    [Reply]

  27. Yep

    So much better than that Girl on Fire song that Nicki made sound even worse

    [Reply]

  28. money talk

    Alicia needs to stay in this range. Her voice is obviously damaged. I think she should get it checked.

    This song is nice.
