â€œOne album. 2 versions. Originals & Unlocked. The Originals come from that classic side of me! Itâ€™s that AK that we WANT!! A homecoming. The Unlocked side, I wanted to sample The Originals to create a whole other sonic experience. So, @mikewillmadeit and I connected and made magic,â€ Keys explained.
Keys served as a quiet storm host on Khalidâ€™s latest EP Scenic Drive earlier this month. In November, she issued Alicia Keys: Sweet Dreams, an Apple Music exclusive EP she described as a â€œcollection of lullabies.â€
Keys also secured two 2022 Grammy nominations, including Song of the Year for â€œA Beautiful Noiseâ€ with Charlie and Best Immersive Audio Album for ALICIA. The LP was among Rated R&Bâ€™s best R&B albums of 2020.
