Alicia Keys is stepping down as judge on NBC's "The Voice" to work on new music for her fans.
The R&B songstress announced that after this season, she will not be joining Miley Cyrus, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine next season in order to focus a new music project. She told Entertainment Tonight early last week that the album is halfway done.
"I’m ready for the next one already, which was kind of the plan the whole time," she said. "I wanted to put out Here where they have a statement body of work, and my next body of work is already in the works. I’m excited! I can’t wait for you to hear new music, and so that’s one of the reasons why I won’t be able to come back next season," she continued. "But I love writing. It’s just the most beautiful, exciting things, and every time I get better. That’s the blessing and magic of writing," she said.
We can't wait to hear your new work mama!
