NEW MUSIC: ALICIA KEYS | LALA (UNLOCKED) (FEATURING SWAE LEE)
Alicia Keys releases a new song with the help of Swae Lee for her new single ‘LALA (Unlocked),’ which she says are filled with “timeless vibes.” There’s no news yet on her new album. Earlier this summer, we got a treat from the legendary Alicia Keys as she shared "Foolish Heart," the first song she ever recorded. It was to celebrate the 20th anniversary of her debut album, "Songs In A Minor." two will perform the new song for the first time live at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. On the single, the pair trade flirtatious lines. “Skin like whiskey/She’s cold like on the rocks,” Swae Lee sings. “Feelings get lost in the lala,” Keys sings. Keys’ performance this Sunday marks her return to the VMA stage after nine years. She last performed “Girl on Fire” during the 2012 awards show with Nicki Minaj and Gabby Douglas. The singer has won four VMAs, including 2001’s Best New Artist in a Video for her debut hit “Fallin.” Outside of music, it’s also been revealed that Keys is once again delving into the literary world. Earlier this week, HarperCollins Publishers announced that Keys’ chart-topping single “Girl On Fire” is being turned into a book — the story will be about 14-year-old Lolo Wright, who possesses telekinetic abilities. Co-written by Andrew Weiner and illustrated by Brittney Williams, the graphic novel is expected to hit shelves on March 1 of next year.
