It’s On Again

Single Release0 Comments

The artist releases It’s On Again, featuring Lamar, from the album, The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

I’m very excited to be a part of such a powerful collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer. This is the next chapter in the Spider-Man legacy and we really feel It’s On Again captures the experience, the story—and most importantly—the meaning behind the film, which is that we all have the potential to be extraordinary. There’s a little bit of a super hero in all of us.

Tavis Smiley interview

Interview0 Comments

Keys discusses her career and album, Girl on Fire, in this interview for PBS.

Well, I personally, this whole project, this whole time in my life, this whole album really represents a really important time for me, where I’ve actually – it’s funny you bring up that word – where I’ve actually been in the process of removing fear from my vocabulary, from my essence. Because I feel like we can do so much greatness when we’re not afraid. It’s when we become afraid of everything and worried about everything that you are never going to reach your highest potential.
