Her latest album, Keys, has ushered in a new era for Alicia Keys. The vocal icon recently shared her eighth studio album, and with this labor of love comes the announcement that Keys is now an independent artist. Twenty years ago, Alicia dropped her classic debut album Songs in A Minor, and with Keys, the singer has fulfilled her contract with Sony.

Keys’s proud husband Swizz Beatz never misses a moment to praise his wife and shared his excitement about her new creative season that approaches.

“Congrats my Love this is Big Big Big News and you deserve it to the MAX! 20yrs of greatness !” he wrote on Instagram “Groundbreaking and unforgettable moments !
