Alicia Keys is out with the old and in with the new! Last night, the ESSENCE cover star debuted her latest video, “Brand New Me,” rocking her new signature haircut and singing about her new found freedom.
However, true Keys fans will be happy to know not everything about the Grammy Award-winning singer has changed. In the video, she performs while walking backstage before losing control. She then returns to where we fell in love with her: in front of her piano. Diane Martel directed the moody clip. Martel is also responsible Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You” and “Like You’ll Never See Me Again” videos.
Check out the full video above and let us know what you think of the new Alicia and this powerful ballad.
