Alicia Keys Channels Crystal Waters with "Brand New Me" Remix

AliciaKeys.comAlicia Keys fans showered the singer with love last week when she celebrated her birthday.  So to show her supporters just how appreciative she is, Alicia's released a house music-inspired remix of her Girl on Fire single "Brand New Me."

"'I've been so overwhelmed by all of your birthday love that I HAD to do something extra special for you! Love to you!!! Big shout to Crystal Waters for your inspiration!… New Music!! B.N.M Part 2!!!!'" Alicia wrote in a message on her website.  The new release is very similar to Waters' 1991 hit "Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless)."  But instead of singing the song's famous "la da dee la da da" lyrics, as is, Alicia replaces a line with "brand new me/ brand new you/ something new/ overdue." 

The new track doesn't come as a total surprise, of course.  Alicia's hubby Swizz Beatz told ABC News Radio earlier this month that Alicia had done a couple new songs and she'd be making some "interesting" announcements around her birthday.
