Though she is with-child, singer Alicia Keys stopped by the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas this weekend for a surprise performance. During the festivities, Billboard caught up with the “Girl on Fire” singer to discuss her new single “We Are Here” and her upcoming album.
When discussing the single, Keys mentions that the song is about how people can come together as one, become inspired and spark an enlightening conversation. “It allows us to have this dialog about why are you here,” she said. “I think that’s been really powerful. People have been responding to it. I’m looking forward to continuing to spread that dialog, that conversation.”
The expectant mother also spoke about her album that is currently in the works. “Just really, for me, the best music I’ve ever done yet. I love what’s happening, what’s coming. I feel really humbled and blessed by the experience. It’s a lot deeper and more, like, (there’s) more clarity to it and I just can’t wait. When you hear it, you tell me.”
