Pharrell Talks New Alicia Keys Album: ‘It Supersedes Anything That’s Out’

Alicia Keys' forthcoming sixth studio album will be groundbreaking. That is according to Pharrell Williams, who says the music that has been recorded will "supersede anything that's out (now)."

"Alicia’s album is crazy. Harlem is gonna be real proud. New York is gonna be real proud. It supersedes anything that’s out," the "Happy" singer and producer told Angie Martinez during a recent interview at Hot 97.

According to Pharrell, Keys, a fellow Grammy winner, is on a completely different level.

"There’s just a whole other level of what she’s doing and I was very honored to have her on my album, and we actually worked on some records for her album while she was doing that for me. New York, be very proud because she’s done something next level," said Pharrell.

It's unclear when Keys' new album will be released or when we might hear the first single.

Her last album, "Girl On Fire," was released in 2012. It produced the hit title track and the Maxwell assisted hit "Fire We Make."
