Alicia Keys is strutting into 2020 with a purpose.
Because, not only will the New Year bring with it her return to the GRAMMYs as host, it’ll see her unleash her seventh studio album – the name of which has now been revealed.
Head below for details…
With the singer’s feature spread, it’s announced that her new LP is titled ‘A.L.I.C.I.A’ and will arrive in 2020. Led by the Miguel assisted ‘Show Me Love,’ the project is Keys’ first body of work since 2016’s ‘Here.’
On Her Album & Book:
“[They’re both] the best therapy I ever had. I ended up being able to see the moments that things shifted. When you’re living it, you’re not really reflecting on it.”
On Artists Such As Frank Ocean & Kanye West Sitting Out The GRAMMYS:
“I get it. I do. But I think [I’m] just becoming more aware of the power that we have as individuals. I think that you’ve got to actually be a part of whatever shift you want.”
On Her Approach To Hosting The 2020 Ceremony On Jan 26th:
“[I’m inspired by] people who have created these beautiful variety-style shows, like Carol Burnett, or Sammy Davis Jr., or Dean Martin. Nobody does that anymore. They had this cool mixture of musician and artist and comedian, so it mixed all of these worlds together in this casual [way], while they’re holding, like, a whiskey. I want to see how to modernize that.”
