HipHollywood sat down with Keys, who told us she’s had to forfeit some sleep, but says that’s not stopping her grind. “I’m feeling good, and I’m just feeling like the things I’m doing, I’m loving them, and I’m just so excited about this film, so excited about the music that is coming, with my music, she explained. “I’m like, I can’t wait for ya’ll to hear it.”
And believe it or not, Keys going makeup free for the past several months has given her a renewed sense of confidence that fans will definitely hear on her new album. “I just feel renewed,” said the 35-year-old mother of two. “I just feel in a new space as an artist, as a woman, as a creative person, as a mother. I just feel like I’m in my skin, and I’m liking it here.”
“I know for a fact that this music is the most honest that I’ve been, it’s the most vulnerable that I’ve been able to be on a record,” she added.
So far, Keys has dropped the up-tempo single “In Common.” No word yet on when the project will release, but fans can enjoy her music in Queen of Katwe when it hits theaters September 30th.
