"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.
"The music is coming within the next couple of months and so we're really putting all the final touches on it," she shares. "I am in like a whole other zone."
While she's focused on crafting a sonic opus, Keys is also multitasking with an array of projects. "I've really fallen in love with producing, film, television and Broadway," the singer discloses. "So I'm really developing a lot of projects like that and I'm just in love."
