Alicia Keys is one week away from the release of her album Here. "We've never gone into the studio with this much intention and so sure about what I wanted to say,” Keys said of the album. Her message rings loud and clear on her newest song "Holy War." The song is a battle cry of love. Accompanied only by raspy guitar, Keys beseeches us to give up divisive language and hateful thoughts and embrace our fellow man, no matter his "sexuality or skin."
Listen to "Holy War" and return on November 4th to stream Here.
If war is holy and sex is obscene
Then we got it twisted in this lucid dream
Baptized in boundaries, schooled in sin
Divided by difference, sexuality and skin
