It might not be long before fans of Alicia Keys won't be seeing the singer performing and also releasing an album as the latest report claims that the singer could be retiring soon. According to the news Alicia could be retiring by the time her age reaches 30 and plannig to travel around the world after that.
The R 'n' B singer hinted her retirement plan in a statement to the press saying, "I am working hard now so I have the choice to retire when I want." Moreover, confirming the reason for her retirement she said, "I would like to travel the world and stay in places instead of having to move on like I do now. I want to experience difference cultures."

Alicia won't be hitting the road alone, as she has confirmed that she will be accompanied by some musicians on the tour.
