The movie 12 Years A Slave has been getting rave reviews from critics, but the accompanying soundtrack also packs star power – like Alicia Keys. Keys just released a new song from the movie’s soundtrack called “Queen Of The Field.”
According to idolator.com:
“Alicia Keys sings mournfully about slavery on the highly emotional ‘Queen Of The Field.’ The soulful piano ballad appears on the 12 Years A Slave soundtrack and effortlessly evokes the struggle of Black women in pre-Civil War United States.
“’Queen of the field, born among cotton,’ croons Alicia over her trusty piano and traditional instruments from the era. ‘Just a little girl, little girl forgotten.’ As expected from the ever-great R&B diva, it’s extremely powerful and heartfelt.”
