The DNC appearance and a slew of performances on summer awards shows seemed to mark Keys’ return to pop-culture relevance, after a few relatively quiet years out of the spotlight, save for a mini-arc on Fox’s Empire in 2015.
They look like they're having a blast on vacation and all, but we miss seeing all those romantic, #relationshipgoals moments, like the time he just looked at her with dreamy eyes at a White House State Dinner. I met a couple this week at the Brooklyn Artists Ball that totally reminds me of that kind of (former) FLOTUS and POTUS sweetness: Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz. Of course, she's won 15 Grammys, has sold over 35 million albums and has 30 million singles worldwide.
At the VMAs in late August, she appeared in a red-and-black gown, rocked a misty Afro puff, and recited a spoken-word poem in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.'s “I Have a Dream” speech.
But something seemed a bit off during her DNC performance.
Keys began her set with 2007’s “Superwoman,” a girl-power jam intended to inspire Clinton’s base.
She gave a rousing rendition, but as she belted out “I am a superwoman / Yes I am,” the sentiment felt strangely unconvincing, given the years of public controversy that undermined her character.
Her 2003 album, The Diary of Alicia Keys, catapulted her to further stardom, buttressed by what The Guardian termed an “inoffensive” image.
