Alicia Keys has always been independent and done her own thing, but now she’s asking fans to help with her campaign for ‘A New Day.’ (We thought it was just ‘New Day,’ but she says ‘A New Day’ — and she’s the one who wrote it!) The singer is launching an interactive Instagram campaign for a special video for the new track.
Fans can submit inspiring photos to Instagram using the hashtag “#AKNewDay.” Keys will then choose her favorite shots to use in the ‘New Day’ music video.
Keys posted a video gushing about the project. “I released the song ‘A New Day’ and I couldn’t wait to see what your replies were on Twitter and Facebook, so I’ve been on there all day,” she grinned from the studio. “Your positivity, your zone, just the way you’re feelin’ me is so crazy and exciting! This is what I’ve been building towards.” Her joy is palpable — the gal can hardly contain herself!
“I love this song ‘A New Day’ because it’s about new beginnings, fresh perspectives, it’s about removing anything from your life that’s holding you back. It’s about living your life to the fullest,” she gushed. “Now it’s your turn. I want to know what ‘A New Day’ means to you … I want you to Instagram what ‘A New Day’ feels like for you.”
Keys clearly adores her fans, so this is a sweet way to recognize them. If you want to enter, hurry and start filtering — the deadline for submissions is Aug. 1!
