20 Years Later!
After 2 decades beloved R&B star Alicia Keys has departed from her label Sony and is now an independent artist.
Keys made the big announcement in the same chat where Jay-Z said no one could beat him in a Verzuz battle.
“I’m so excited because KEYS is actually the last album I have on a major label,” Alicia revealed.
Her husband Swizz Beatz congratulated her while sharing a photo.
“Congrats my Love this is Big Big Big News and you deserve it to the MAX! 20yrs of greatness !” he wrote.
“Groundbreaking and unforgettable moments ! I love that you have this freedom at this time in your life it’s rare!!!! Life begins now and this KEYS album is a true masterpiece that’s Raw uncut and no fake hype!!”
“Thank you to everyone that supported since day one and those who now support ! @aliciakeys is just getting started let’s go Shout out to all the independent woman around the world !!!!”
Jay-Z also congratulated Alicia on this accomplishment.
“Congratulations, first of all, that’s an accomplishment,” he starts off. “The fact that you were signed to a label for twenty years is an amazing thing in itself, but the fact that you were able to complete your contract, not many people have been afforded that. That rarely happens for someone to maintain relevance through a contact like that.”
