Alicia Keys has revealed her first official single since 2012. Cut for the Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack, “It’s On Again” was produced by Pharrell Williams and co-written by blockbuster composer Hans Zimmer and Kendrick Lamar, who nearly steals the show with his rapid fire rhymes at the starting gate.

“[Director Marc Webb] and I were talking about Spider-Man,” Zimmer said in a press release last fall, “and as the word got out, so many of our friends and musicians started calling us up, wanting to be a part of it, because they love Spider-Man. With all of these hugely talented people wanting to join us, it was Marc who said, ‘Why not start a band?’ Marc and I have had a great start jamming with everybody, and we still have a few surprises up our sleeve.”

That band ended up including Johnny Marr, Michael Einziger and Dave Stewart, and Williams stepped in to help Zimmer score the film. Check out the official “It’s On Again” video below, and look out for the rest of the soundtrack on April 22…
