AceShowbiz - Alicia Keys celebrated her 36th birthday on Wednesday, January 25 with a brand new song titled "That's What's Up". On the three-minute track, Keys sampled Kanye West's "The Life of Pablo" cut "Low Lights", which comes from King of Tomorrow's "So Alive".
The song, which was likely produced by her husband Swizz Beatz, begins with a Bible verse, "You want me to give you a testimony about my life." Keys' vocals ring out clear and unobstructed over simple neo-gospel arrangement as she delivers high notes about her gratitude. She sings, "Time and time you've lifted me up/ Lord knows you'll never let me down, now that's what's up."
The track comes with an accompanying video that finds the R&B singer in a white robe and towel. The intimate clip sees Keys walking around her bedroom before stepping into a bathtub full of bubble while singing the song. Towards the end of the video, the singer is seen sipping a glass of red wine.
Keys received tons of birthday shout outs from her fellow musicians, close friends, fans and especially from her husband. Beatz posted a black-and-white photo collage of Keys, along with another photo of her standing on a beach in a red outfit and colorful head wrap.
Kerry Washington also joined the birthday celebration by Instagramming a photo of the singer on the cover of Allure magazine. "#womancrushwedensday and a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Aquarius sister girl, the gorgeous and glorious @aliciakeys," so she captioned it.
