Alicia Keys - If I Ain’t Got You (Orchestral) (Official Video - Netflix’s Queen Charlotte Series)

“The entire idea was quite ambitious,” Keys told Billboard. “I feel like it’s going to open the minds of many people to realize that women of color belong everywhere and we’ve always been everywhere. It’s magical.”


The song is part of a beautiful, crucial moment in George and Charlotte’s relationship, and it’s absolutely perfect. In fact, every cover used in the romantic drama hits its emotional target. They draw us even deeper into the complicated love story of the king and queen. Considering how obsessed I’ve been with this series since it premiered, I’m not exactly an unbiased audience, but it feels like Queen Charlotte uses its covers better than the first two seasons of Bridgerton. “Halo” from Beyoncé; “Nobody Gets Me” by SZA; and Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” are among the tracks prominently featured in the show.

Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story is now available on Netflix.
