Alicia Keys Surprises Fans by Releasing New Song 'Raise a Man' After Hosting 2019 Grammys


After hosting the 61st annual Grammy Awards, Alicia Keys dropped a new track, “Raise a Man.”

The piano-backed song is an ode to good men — and an appeal to make more of them.

“You’re just not like these other men out here/ You just wanna hold me, and that’s okay/ Can I be a woman for you, babe, in a time when it’s not allowed,” Keys sings.

“How am I supposed to pretend that I don’t want you the way that I do / ‘Cause every time you’re around me, I feel virgin all again / And every time you’re all around me, how can I renege, boy I just need your hand.

“Is it okay that I’m not independent? Is it okay that I show weakness? Is it okay I can’t wait to see you? Is it okay to love a man right now? If you understand, then show me your hands,” she adds in the emotional song.

The 15-time Grammy winner is married to fellow musician Swizz Beatz, 40. They share two sons: Egypt, 8, and Genesis, 4.
