ALICIA KEYS ENLISTS DRAKE FOR NEW ALBUM
Everyone wants a piece of Drake. Alicia Keys is the latest superstar to call on the in-demand rapper for a collaboration.
The “Best I Ever Had” hitmaker is reportedly featured on a song from Keys’ fourth album The Element of Freedom, due December 15. Her longtime producer Kerry “Krucial” Brothers broke the news on Twitter.
“‘If you have something to say… U should say it right now,’” he wrote, possibly quoting the unnamed song’s lyrics. “Wow this new Ak and Drake is fire! I love my job.”
Also included on the album is “Empire State of Mind II,” the sequel to her hit with Jay-Z, featuring a new verse from Hov.
