R+B star Alicia Keys turns to her love for music whenever she feels depressed - and credits her new album with saving her life. The Fallin' singer has not released a new studio album in four years (03), but is finally preparing to drop her new album As I Am after a "roller-coaster year", which has seen the 27-year-old venture into Hollywood with a role in movie Smoking Aces. She says, "I needed this music more than it needed me. "This year's been a roller-coaster, but as down as I've been, I've learned so much. I found beauty during the dark times."
