Alicia Keys Enlists Drake for New Album

Alicia Keys and Drake

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.

    @lame, your name suits you. cause everything you’re saying is just lame. alicia keys is a respected artist who makes good music. dont make judgments just because you don’t like her just to be hateful.

    her personal life has nothing to do with her music. DUH!

    Alicia Keys aint Desperate. And Drake sure as hell wont make her album sell more. The guys EP flopped hard, thats why he is not bringing out a proper full length album. All you haters make me sick. Alicia is gonna sell like she usually does. Millions.

    @Vanti, drake’s mixtape was free and it still sold 73k in the first week of commercial release. most artists can’t sell that with a brand new LP. his debut is one of the most anticipated albums of 2010. get ur facts straight

    LMAO Alicia has already made 3 albums without HUGE features and she’s sold really well. She can do whatever the hell she wants and I’m sure ya’ll will be ranting and raving about it anyway.

    Oh and she even said in an interview before “Doesn’t Mean Anything” was released that she wished she could’ve worked with Drake soo…..

    Luv Drake and Alicia collabo! Alicia is fire without anyone else. I love Drake. He has a smooth flow.

    Hate! Envy and Jealousy are contagious characteristics amongst human begins.

    Alicia is a talented musician and artist who is able to compose, write and produce her own music. She also plays and reads music as well.–Not many R&B and HIP/HOP artist are self-contained.

    I’m assuming that Jay and Alicia will perform “Empire State of Mind II” at the AMA’s.

    The facts are clear, Drake is a Singles Artist, not an Albums Artist. So he should be honored to be working with Keys, period.
    Anyway, the “Try sleeping with a broken heart” video is premiering NOW on BET 106 & Park.
