*Alicia Keys honored Martin Luther King Jr. Day with the release of “Power,” an unheard track she recorded seven years ago.

“This is a song about power that I wrote back in 2007 that I have never shared with my family until now,” Keys wrote of the track on her website. “This is one of my favorite unreleased songs. I was looking for my power. This song says it all.”

The song has Keys crooning, “Grandma, used to say nothing before it was time / used to say that the world would be mine / so I should just have faith / she showed me, all I need in this life is for free / change is one thing that is guaranteed / so I should just keep pace.”
