Alicia Keys shared the cover image of the upcoming issue of Vibe, which is graced by her beautiful face.

The singer is over the moon about the result of the shoot, as she tweeted: “You get the first look! I’m in love with this @vibemagazine !!!!

The image is futuristic, with Keys displayed in a fierce way. Her hair styled in an elaborate, pushed back pompadour that would normally be better suited for Bruno Mars or, say, Elvis. But she owns it.

Her lips are also painted dark purple with a matte finish, and her shirt has a high collar. It’s all very much like ‘The Matrix.’ We’re half expecting Keys to offer us a red or a blue pill. Where’s Neo when you need him?

The cover tags reads as follows: “Alicia Keys’ First Real Interview.” It implies that the vocalist will go deep and delve into new or previously uncharted topical territory in her Vibe chat. We can’t wait to read the issue and get real with Alicia Keys. We’ll just enjoy the cover shot for now.
