Alicia Keys has officially released Here, her sixth studio album.

In preparation for its release, Keys hosted a free star-studded show in Times Square which aired on BET, and featured appearances by Jay Z, Nas, Q-Tip, Questlove and John Mayer. The album clocks in at 16-tracks, with the sole feature being on "Blended Family" featuring an assist by A$AP Rocky.

Keys called the project her most "raw and honest creation yet" when she made the announcement on Instagram last month. The album includes the previously released "Holy War" as well as "The Gospel," for which she dropped a gorgeous, New York-inspired short film earlier in the week.

Keys surprised fans with a personal DM of the album's track list last week, adding to the personal touch she's trying to relay with the new release.

“This album is so much about life. It’s about New York City. It’s about my city. It’s about us as people. It’s about all the stories that I saw growing up,” Keys explained during a recent appearance on The Today Show.
