The R 'n' B singer plans to explore her musicalities by entering the rock realm and eying a duet with the duo rockers.
It seems that Alicia Keys is not only keen on making R 'n' B stuffs but she also has a dream to make a rock music. This fact occurred after the singer hinted to RollingStone.com that she would love to do some collaboration with rock musicians.
That idea came to Alicia's mind ever since she did a duet with Keith Urban at the Live Earth concert in 2007. After that, the singer has already set her mind on another collaboration with other rockers, such as Queens of the Stone Age, Linkin Park, Coldplay and The White Stripes.
From the four bands she has listed above, Alicia confirms that the White Stripes are the one she really desires to team up with. Stating her admiration over the band, she said "They're very raw, very cut and dry. It's like drums and guitar. It's that simple, and I love that."
Moreover, Alicia also revealed the reason she put the White Stripes on top of her list saying, "I think that combining that style with mine, which already has a raw feel to it, and my voice, I just think we could do something really interesting that mixes rock and soul together, the blues and emotion, and it could be really touching."
The R 'n' B singer then added that she has been talking to the band and said that the collaboration could really happen. "We've had some conversations. When the time works out, and it definitely will, it will happen, she said."
