Alicia Keys is bursting with creative energy, and Broadway is about to feel it! A brand new musical titled “Hell’s Kitchen” is hitting the stage, featuring music by Alicia Keys herself. The music draws inspiration from her experiences growing up in New York City.

Alicia Keys isn’t just lending her iconic voice to the production; she’s deeply involved. Over the past decade, she’s collaborated with writer Kristoffer Diaz to craft the show. Together, they’ve breathed new life into some of her existing hits and composed brand-new music specifically for the stage. Their dedication finally culminates in a stunning Broadway debut on April 20th at the Shubert Theatre.

Alicia Keys, singer and songwriter, believes the musical “Hell’s Kitchen” explores a powerful theme: self-discovery. In her words, the story tackles “how we find ourselves, what resonates with us, and how to break free from limitations.” These limitations can be self-doubt, but they can also be the burdens of guilt or fear passed down from others.

Alicia Keys’ new musical, Hell’s Kitchen, is a vibrant mix of her popular hits and brand-new songs. The very first song, “Kaleidoscope,” was written specifically for the show.

Playwright Kristoffer Diaz explained how they weaved the story around Alicia Keys’ existing music and identified spots where new songs were needed. He says some classic Keys songs like “Fallen” and “Empire State of Mind” were natural fits. But, the exciting part was incorporating brand-new music throughout the development process.

For Kristoffer Diaz, Alicia Keys’ music is already great at telling stories. “Musical theater songs need to be catchy, but they also have to push the plot forward,” explained Kristoffer Diaz.

The beauty is that Alicia’s songs already do that naturally. Most pop and R&B artists don’t write music that’s so inherently dramatic, but she does”

Alicia Keys has been working on the musical for 13 years, creating new music for the show and her albums. These songs went through revisions, repositioning, and even cuts. Interestingly, some of her new solo tracks ended up in the musical too.

Alicia Keys described the inspiration behind “Kaleidoscope” as that feeling of everything coming together spectacularly, with a single moment shining brightly and leaving you in awe.

“We knew ‘Kaleidoscope’ had to be joyful and energetic,” she says.

“We kept adding layers of music to create that truly kaleidoscopic experience, where the song keeps building and growing in energy.”

D’banj, also known as The Kokomaster, aka Bangalee, has been rocking the music scene for a whopping twenty years—yes, two whole decades. To celebrate this huge milestone, he’s dropped a fresh new single called “Since ’04.”

Now, as he looks back on his incredible journey and shares his latest tune, “Since ’04,” D’banj is feeling grateful for all the love and support from his fans. And with two decades of music-making under his belt, there’s no stopping this music legend!

“I’m dropping a track that is dear to my heart. One of my favs yet. Been at it since ‘04 and I feel like I’m just starting ⭐️ When I look back at my journey as your favourite entertainer, many names pop up in my mind for their various contributions to D’banj. Today, I celebrate Mo’ Hits.. the group and our team. What a SOLID team we had. Don Jazzy, Wande Coal, Dr. Sid, D’Prince and Kay Switch. My brothers were the best! Together we elevated this game and showed them things that could happen… “
