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 début (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.
