Alicia Keys battles the struggle of a long-distance relationship as she plays the role of a lonely performer on the grind, in the music video for “Tears Always Win.” The R&B songstresses latest single off her 2012 album Girl On Fire, which was co-written by Bruno Mars.
As a multi-talented entertainer in Las Vegas, Keys pulls double duty. The star looks glamorous while wearing a jeweled headdress fit for a queen, as she plays a showgirl in a show on the strip, and works as a late-night lounge singer.
She pours out her emotions on stage nightly, but once the night is over, she is left lonely, crying to herself in her motel room over her man.
On June 25, Alicia will release her CD/DVD VH1 Storytellers featuring 11 performances from the special.
