Video: Alicia Keys – ‘New Day’

Alicia Keys

After slowing things down with Maxwell in the sultry video for “Fire We Make,” Alicia Keys kicks things into high gear in the surprise video for her triumphant anthem “New Day.”

The R&B diva puts on her stilettos and hits the streets of New York. She dances in an alleyway as graffiti artists tag the lyrics to the Swizz Beatz-produced song off her album Girl on Fire, and performs a concert for her fans.

Alicia wrapped the U.S. leg of her “Set the World on Fire” tour with Miguel last month and will head to the U.K. on May 18.

Watch her celebrate life in the feel-good video.

    They just totally messed the chances this song had to be successful. Didn’t they give it to 50?

    @Meme, she said in an interview they are both different versions…she has one and he has one…but Alicia’s version is way better than 50′s

    @J Smith, this is how I feel …. Beyonce outshined Alicia in that video that’s why it was never released

    @Bout Dat life, No way did anyone outshine Alicia on that video. I saw bits and pieces and Alicia was so so amazing and she looked great, but I believe she was expecting in it. Nevertheless, she still outshined. In the streets and in her white dress, she looked beautiful.

    This is the best version of this video yet. Wish it would have been released as her first single last year instead of the rap version. Alicia is beautiful here and I love the concert footage and all the other footage. She is amazing.

    this vid is good. She didn’t do this video tho for the U.S., she did it for her European fans — hence the upcoming tour stops in Europe. Fire We Make is for the U.S. right now.
