Alicia Keys has a new album that will be released in 2015 and she has a message behind her music.
In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Keys was discussing a beauty campaign she recently launched when she talked about the message she wanted to give to her fans through her new music.
She said, “This album is more about the concept, the thought I’m trying to get across, where in the past it’s been more about the melody. This time it’s about what we’re going through as human beings.”
Keys wanted her music to explore the “boxes” that people are put in when they are expected to act in just one way, although there are many sides to us. She wanted her music to take those boundaries and break them down.
According to The Inquisitr, Keys also wanted her album to explore empowerment for women. She wanted it to be a project where the music needs to be listened to at once rather than focusing on a single.
Keys said, “Obviously record companies need to go where the business is, so we started making singles, which is cool, but there’s something so amazing about an entire body of work, a collective view, that sense that all of this music came from one artist.”
Givenchy has made Alicia Keys the face of their new fragrance, called Dahlia Divin, and it will be available in September globally.
