After getting married and giving birth to her first child, Alicia Keys is excited to share her new music with the world. The Grammy-winning superstar will return to the stage at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.
Keys will debut a new song off the follow-up to 2009s The Element of Freedom at the VMAs in Los Angeles on September 6.
“Debuting a new song at the VMAs is definitely special. I debuted ‘No One’ at the VMAs, it was the first time anyone had ever heard ‘No One,'” she told MTV News. “It was just the perfect setting. It’s the right energy. It’s the right vibe. It’s just that edgy enough for people to be open to hearing new songs. I think people are so excited about the night of music and hearing different styles that it just goes over really well, and this time I am going to debut a brand new song as well. This song is so crazy! I’m so excited for real. I’m so excited. I can’t wait to tell y’all about it but it’s just a really empowering and powerful moment.”
She can’t wait to hit the stage at the Staples Center. “I’m in my space and I feel more confident than ever to really just have a crazy, fun time,” added the Grammy-winning songstress. “It’s so exciting to bring people into my world and where I’ve been and what I’ve been working on. And there’s no better place in the whole wide world than the VMAs to do that, so it’s gonna be crazy.”
Last month, Alicia gave fans a taste of her upcoming album with the celebratory anthem “New Day.”
