Alicia Keys provides some words of encouragement on “Better You, Better Me.” The motivational anthem appears on the soundtrack to the drama The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete, which she executive produced.
“I know I’m gonna make it/ I’ve come too far to lose it/ I’ve gotta stay focused and find a better me,” sings Alicia over the drum-patterned beat.
The movie, starring Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks, opens in theaters today.
Maxwell revealed that he and Alicia may be working on a duets album. “We’ve spoken about a couple of different things. We’ve spoken about definitely doing something creative together. But which way that comes together… I’m not sure yet,” Alicia told ESSENCE.
