Alicia Keys Has the Blues in ‘Tears Always Win’ Video
Alicia Keys always delivers a good plot for her music videos. The visual for her song, ‘Tears Always Win,’ is no different.
The singer is a starving artist with dreams of making it big in Las Vegas, where she performs as a showgirl. She gets glammed up and makes it in time to her performance, but throughout the video she can’t shake off the thoughts of her long gone lover.
“These lips are missing you / ‘Cause these lips ain’t kissing you / These eyes put up a fight / But once again, these tears always win,” she sings.
She also sits at her piano and performs at a nightclub, where the audience members feel her pain as she belts out the lyrics, co-written by Bruno Mars. No happy endings here — just Keys walking off into the sunset.
