Alicia Keys first performed this record, “Brand New Me”, when she performed at the iTunes Festival in London, but today she releases the official CDQ… – I usually abstain from Alicia Keys‘ songs, because I haven’t been able to buy into her image since her adulterous romance with with Swizz Beatz, but this record is descent. Just wished I believed it.
“‘Brand New Me’ is about the journey it takes to get to a place where you are proud to be a new you. There is nothing wrong with growing! There may be people in your life that knew you for a long time and they think of you only as the person you used to be and not the person you now are! And this song is a conversation introducing them to the new you! Where nothing can hold you back and no one can hold you down!”
