Alicia Keys Leaving ‘The Voice’ to Finish 7th Album!

The Voice - Season 12

Its been a while since we’ve heard Alicia Keys on the radio, although we can catch her on The Voice every Monday. But that’s about to change. The singer will be leaving The Voice this season to head back into the studio for her 7th album. “I’m about halfway,” she said of her new album.”I’m ready for the next one already, which was kind of the plan the whole time. 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!”

So in order for Alicia to give her new music all her time, she will be stepping down after this season of The Voice.”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. 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.”
