Video Premiere : ‘Tears Always Win’ By Alicia Keys


To no one’s surprise in particular, the thoroughly amazing Mizz Alicia Keys’ 5th studio album ‘Girl On Fire‘ has gone Platinum in the US for shipping over a million copies already.

After crowning the Billboard 200 upon its d├ębut (her 5th # 1 album there), sales of the flaw-free R’n’B masterpiece have been consistent, thanks to her relentless promotion and the release of perfectly timed singles that have had a multi-format impact on the charts.

One of my faves from the album, the soulful ‘Tears Always Win‘ – produced by Jeff Bhasker and co-written by Bruno Mars – finally gets the video treatment after being released as the 5th overall single from the album.

The Robert Hales-directed clip sees the Soul diva working it as a cabaret dancer in Vegas – feathers, fishnets, head-gear et al – and missing her ex through it all.

The video definitely goes well with the sombre and mellow mood of the ballad.
