For those of you who used to think you could have a career as a successful, recording artist. You might thank your lucky stars that that dream didn’t pan out. Because these singers, musicians and the crews helping them put in some work! A while back, we posted the video for Alicia Keys’ song, “Brand New Me,” one of the singles from her new album Girl on Fire . Now, she’s showing us all the work that went into producing the very personal song. In this behind the scenes video of her shooting her “Brand New Me” video we watch Alicia Keys come in at 5 in the morning, talk about the importance of her hair and how people reacted to her cutting her hair, her juicing diet and the work she puts in to complete the project.
Check out the letter Alicia wrote explaining the meaning of the song and how it relates to her personal experiences on the next page.
