In honor of her 36th birthday, Alicia Keys keeps giving gifts with the release of her latest song “That’s What’s Up.” Over a sample of Kings of Tomorrow’s “So Alive,” which Kanye West famously sampled on his Life of Pablo cut “Low Lights,” the R&B songbird shares her testimony.
“It feels so good to be free,” sings Keys on the gospel-infused track. “I wanna thank you Lord for all the love / Time after time, you lifted me up / Lord knows, you’ll never let me down / Now that’s what’s up.”
The song was accompanied by some personal footage of the birthday girl strolling around her hotel suite in a bathrobe before disrobing and taking a bubble bath.
Earlier this month, Alicia unleashed the Kaytranada-produced “Sweet F-ing Love.” Next up, she will headline Power 106’s CRUSH concert in L.A. on Feb. 8 and return as coach on the new season of NBC’s “The Voice” on Feb. 27.
