Alicia Keys has returned with a fresh song inspired by the upcoming movie, The Color Purple.

Released on Friday, November 24, the R&B singer unveiled her latest track “Lifeline” through gamma. In this uplifting song, Keys extends herself as a “lifeline” to those in need. This new track serves as the initial single from the official soundtrack for The Color Purple, which features an ensemble cast including Fantasia, Halle Berry, and Taraji P. Henson. Alongside “Lifeline,” the soundtrack will also include original songs inspired by the film from a lineup including H.E.R., Mary J. Blige, Usher, Megan Thee Stallion, Coco Jones, Missy Elliott, Jennifer Hudson, Keyshia Cole, Jorja Smith, Black Thought, Mary Mary, and more.

One week ahead of the digital re-release of her iconic album “The Diary of Alicia Keys,” Alicia Keys has unveiled plans to drop “The Diary of Alicia Keys 20” via Legacy Records. This release is scheduled just a day before the 20th anniversary of her second studio album. Included in the album is her recent track “Golden Child,” a previously unreleased song from her personal vault. To mark this significant milestone, the New York native will perform the entire album during a special show at Webster Hall in her hometown. For those unable to attend the live performance, the event will be available for livestream via the Veeps app.

Excitedly sharing the news on Instagram earlier this week, Keys wrote, “My special one-night-only show on December 1st just got even better!!! Celebrate The Diary Of Alicia Keys 20 with ME, live from NYC streaming directly to YOU, wherever you are in the world!!!! Get access now on @Veeps; it’s going to be magical ✨💜 I can’t wait to vibe out with u!”
