Yesterday we heard directly from Alicia Keys that she is working on her new album, and that it is on it’s way over to us shortly. The beautiful Alicia is on the upcoming cover of Vibe magazine looking fierce, and she has revealed to them too that her sixth album is on the way. Alicia has been around now more than a decade and she has seen huge success with her first few albums. She’s released ?ve albums, won 14 Grammys and sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. She hasn’t been in the spotlight in the music industry for a little while though so I’m hoping that her 6th album will put her back there, where she deserves to be.
The singer-songwriter tweeted on Friday, “So excited to b in album mode!! It’s coming!!! Are you ready????;-)”
Doesn’t she look amazing on this cover? Alicia Keys has this rare quality where she looks extraordinary and ordinary at the same time. In this shot she looks like an incredible, sexy alien-like pop star but somehow I think she also always feels easy to relate to, down to earth and easy breezy. Her hair and makeup in this picture are so totally Alicia Keys’ look of the moment – the unusual sculptured hair, strong dark lips and smoky, deep, eyes… I think we can expect to hear some similar qualities to that, aurally of course, in her new album. Maybe something a little bit more edgy, darker?
I’m excited about Alicia’s new album… really excited to hear her new sounds. Are you, what do you think her 6th album will be like??
