Alicia Keys ‘Work On It’ “Today Show” Video – Watch Performance!
Alicia Keys performed “Work On It” on Friday’s “Today” show. Watch below!
“Work On It,” which was written by Keys and Pharrell, is off the singer’s latest album, Here. The record dropped in November, and peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 chart. On the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums list, however, it went all the way to number one.
This marked Keys’ first time performing “Work On It” on television. Asked by Hoda Kotb why she “saved” the track for the morning show, Keys sweetly answered, “Because I love you, and I love you, America. I love being here.” With her new album, she went on to say, “One of the things I’ve loved doing is doing different songs in different places, so today, I wanted to do this song, just for you, first time ever. Bam!”
The Grammy winner has become a big part of the NBC family in the past few months. As Gossip Cop reported, in September Keys closed out the “Today” show’s summer Citi Concert Series with a big outdoor show in Rockefeller Plaza. That same month, she made her debut as a coach on “The Voice.”
On this week’s performance finale, Keys performed a stunning duet of “Ave Maria” with her artist, We McDonald. And though McDonald ended up placing third, the two appeared to form a strong bond that will last for some time to come. Now the superstar is making the TV rounds.
After an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, Keys brought her incredible spirit and talent to “Today.” Check out the video below!
