Maxwell and Alicia Keys created musical magic with “Fire We Make,” and fortunately for fans, there’s more where that came from. The duo has plans to release a duet EP in the near future, according to Maxwell who recently headlined the first night of Essence Music Festival. He told Billboard, “We’re definitely working on an EP that’s sort of Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell.” How exciting!
Maxwell expounded about their sonic chemistry: “We got a thing musically. That’s like my little sister. What’s funny is Swizz [Beatz] is the champion of all of it… She’s someone that I trust. I’m like that, by the way. Most of the people you see working for me are actually with me. And I’m proud to say that I’ve known them 20 years almost.”
Fans are eager to see how their dynamic will translate on record. Are you checking for a duet album from the two stars, Clutchettes?
