It's On Again

Alicia Keys joins forces with Kendrick Lamar on “It’s On Again” for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Produced by Pharrell Williams, the upbeat, yet foreboding number kicks off with a fiery verse from Kendrick before Alicia chimes in with her silky vocals.

“Working with such talented artists like Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar, and the king of movie scores, Hans Zimmer, was an incredible experience,” said Alicia, who recently shot a video in L.A. “What I love most about our song ‘It’s On Again’ from The Amazing Spider-Man is the message that we all have the potential to be extraordinary. That is something I believe in. We can all be superheroes in our own lives!”

The soundtrack arrives April 22 featuring another song from Pharrell (“Here”), while the film opens in U.S. theaters on May 2.
