Alicia Keys recently stopped by BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge and performed an amazing cover of Billie Eilish’s ‘Everything I Wanted.’  Alicia’s performance was accompanied by her piano and as Billboard puts it, “Alicia infused the dark ballad with an extra layer of dark drama.”

 

 

 

Although she performed ‘Everything I Wanted,’ turns out, she’s a fan of ‘Ocean Eyes.’  Alicia says, “I loved her song Ocean Eyes so much, i covered it and she heard it.  She showed me that she sang Falling, she was probably 9 and it was crazy, it was so good.  It felt like a full circle moment.”

Alicia was referring to the time she filled in for James Corden on The Late Late Show as host back in December.  Billie was the musical guest one night and as a surprise, Alicia shared a video of a young Billie singing a cover of Alicia’s debut single, ‘Fallin.’

 

 

 

During that same episode, Alicia and Billie performed ‘Ocean Eyes,’ together.  Watch below.

 

 

 

Just last month, Alicia released a brand new single titled ‘Underdog,’ and it’ll be featured on her upcoming seventh studio album.  Listen below.
