Maxwell Announces Plans for a Duet Album with Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys and Maxwell will be teaming up for a duet album!
This won’t be the pair’s first time making music. They recorded the song “Fire We Make” for Keys’ fifth studio album Girl on Fire (2012).
Maxwell revealed that he and Keys are working on putting out a duet album in the near future. “We’re definitely working on an EP that’s sort of Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell,” said Maxwell to Billboard.
“We got a thing musically,” explained Maxwell. “That’s like my little sister. What’s funny is Swizz [Beatz] is the champion of all of it… She’s someone that I trust. I’m like that, by the way. Most of the people you see working for me are actually with me. And I’m proud to say that I’ve known them 20 years almost.”
Maxwell’s sixth studio album, blackSUMMERS’night, iwhich is a follow-up to BLACKsummers’night (2009), is slated to drop by the end of the summer.
