‘Queen of Katwe’ movie released in theaters this week and despite it’s slow start we have some great music from the official soundtrack of the movie. One of them is “Back To Life” by Alicia Keys.

As per IMDB, the storyline of Queen of Katwe is as follows;

Living in the slum of Katwe in Kampala, Uganda, is a constant struggle for 10-year-old Phiona (Madina Nalwanga) and her family. Her world changes one day when she meets Robert Katende (David Oyelowo), a missionary who teaches children how to play chess. Phiona becomes fascinated with the game and soon becomes a top player under Katende’s guidance. Her success in local competitions and tournaments opens the door to a bright future and a golden chance to escape from a life of poverty.

I am a fan of Chess and this would be a pretty awesome movie to enjoy on a Friday night.

Climb out from the bottom baby
No more looking back only straight up
Foot on the pedal baby, it’s time to find what you’re made of
Everybody wants to be adored
You don’t have to settle for being enough
Back to life, back to life
Nothing can break you
I will survive, oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah
Back to life

“Back To Life” starts off slow and rhythmic and picks up pace towards the end as the song’s lyrics turn out be more positive and brighter. Alicia Keys’ silky smooth voice is like honey to your ears.
