Alicia Keys is still beaming over the performance she showcased, alongside Stevie Wonder, at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards Sunday (May 20). The R&B songstress shared her excitement following the memorable moment in an interview with Downtown Julie Brown, in addition to giving some insight on the release of her fifth studio album, which serves as a follow-up to 2009’s The Element of Freedom.
“I’m actually finishing baking up the most incredible musical cake that you’ve ever eaten in your life,” the 31-year-old mother of Egypt and wife to Swizz Beatz reveals. “I’m really excited about that.”
In 2011, fans were treated to the re-release of her seminal album, Songs in A Minor, but haven’t heard much new music since. Last month, Keys debuted the song “Not Even a King” at an MTV Upfront event — the effort could possibly show up on her forthcoming fifth LP.
