Alicia Keys, EBONY’S September cover star, released her sixth album “HERE” with 16 thought-provoking tracks. Since her no make-up movement, Keys has shared more of her personal life with fans including her new single, “Blended Family” featuring A$AP Rocky.
“This album is so much about life. It’s about New York City. It’s about my city. It’s about us as people. It’s about all the stories that I saw growing up,” Keys told The Today Show. “It’s aggressive. It’s raw. It’s me being my most truthful, my most call-it-as-it-is, my most honest. It is such powerful music, you are going to go crazy!”
Last week, Keys crept into several of her fan’s Twitter DM’s sharing her track list and asking them to share tweeting #AliciaisHere. See Below:

To promote her album, Keys had a free concert in Times Square last month with a special appearance from Jay-Z and our Power 100 cover star Nas.
With HERE, Keys is sharing a different side of her and does not care what anyone has to say about it. She told The Today Show, “I love it, I’m feeling centered, I’m feeling powerful. I’m feeling clear.”
