Today, global music icon and 15-time GRAMMY® Award winner Alicia Keys dropped a new remix for her hit single “Underdog,” via RCA Records. Featuring Reggae artists Chronixx and Protoje, the re-energized mix sees the song injected with a new vibey, breezy production from P2J and IzyBeats. “Underdog (Remix)” also has new lyrics, evolving the anthemic experience of the original, with Keys crooning a confident, self-assured new hook: “I am destined for greatness/time to embrace it.” “Underdog (Remix)” is available to buy and stream now.
“This remix is such a beautiful vibe! My friends Chronixx and Protoje are so incredible, and I’ve always wanted to create something special with them. I appreciate them sharing their gifts with us on this one,” Alicia said of the song. “I still find so much power in the word ‘underdog,’ especially as a symbol for people who can make it against all odds, and especially now, when we need more than ever to be reminded of our strength and resiliency. We totally changed the lyrics to evolve that feel-good sonic experience.”
In honor of the release of the remix, Keys was joined by Chronixx and Protoje on her Instagram late last night for a special celebration with fans.
The original version of “Underdog” is the current single from Keys’ forthcoming seventh studio album ALICIA. The song was the most added track at Top 40 radio upon its release earlier this year. ALICIA is due for release later this year.
“Underdog (Remix)” comes ahead of the release of Keys’ new book, ebook and audiobook More Myself: A Journey, available March 31.
