Alicia Keys is quite busy these days! From serving as a judge on the new season of  The Voice to working on a new album, and music for Disney’s Queen of Katwe. So, how is she balancing it all with motherhood and marriage?

HipHollywood sat down with Keys, who told us she’s had to forfeit some sleep, but says that’s not stopping her grind.  “I’m feeling good, and I’m just feeling like the things I’m doing, I’m loving them, and I’m just so excited about this film, so excited about the music that is coming, with my music, she explained. “I’m like, I can’t wait for ya’ll to hear it.”

And believe it or not, Keys going makeup free for the past several months has given her a renewed sense of confidence that fans will definitely hear on her new album. “I just feel renewed,” said the 35-year-old mother of two. “I just feel in a new space as an artist, as a woman, as a creative person, as a mother. I just feel like I’m in my skin, and I’m liking it here.”

“I know for a fact that this music is the most honest that I’ve been, it’s the most vulnerable that I’ve been able to be on a record,” she added.

So far, Keys has dropped the up-tempo single “In Common.” No word yet on when the project will release, but fans can enjoy her music in Queen of Katwe when it hits theaters September 30th.



Reports: Mariah Carey Signs With Jay Z’s RocNation



We know Mariah Carey changes managers like she changes clothes, but her next move could be her best move. According to Page Six Carey is in talks with Jay Z’s Roc Nation to manage her career.

Roc Nation manages Rihanna, Shakira, J Cole and DJ Khaled to name a few.

Apparently, the pop diva is hoping Hov and his team can put her back on top now that she parted ways with former manager Stella Bulochnikov earlier this month.

Sources tell HipHollywood Carey is cleaning house, and has also fired her publicist, assistant and attorney Darrell Miller.

But one person who hasn’t gotten the boot is her back-up dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka. Rumors were swirling that she hired Tanaka to take over her day-to-day management, but he’s actually her creative director.

Carey just released her holiday movie Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You, and is slated to bring her Christmas concerts back to the Beacon Theater in NYC this month. She hasn’t however dropped a new album in almost four years.

Fingers crossed this new partnership with Roc Nation brings about new music, and a Mariah / Jay Z collaboration. The two did make magic back in 1999 with their #1 single “Heartbreaker.”
