A Keys is on the cover of the latest Billboard magazine and discusses “Elements of Freedom”:
What triggered this whole freedom feeling?
The process began with “As I Am.” I was trying to find the way to totally be myself and what that meant; figuring out what choices I wanted to make and not make in order to truly honor myself. That was the beginning of learning how to do that. And now it’s culminated into “The Element of Freedom”: the ability to have nothing holding you back; to be totally brave enough to be completely yourself in all of its glory.
Guess that’s her reasoning for stealing someone’s husband as well. SMH.
