Madonna‘s upcoming album is rapidly becoming one big music industry group project: From Diplo to Avicii to Natalia Kills to Blood Diamonds, there’s seemingly no end to the amount of hands on the Queen Of Pop’s long-awaited MDNA follow-up. But why stop there?

One of the latest collaborators? The girl on fire herself, Miss Alicia Keys, confirmed last month after Madonna posted an Instagram (naturally!) giving the songstress a shout out. And now, Alicia’s starting to speak out about the collaboration.

In a new interview with Vibe, the talented R&B diva spilled on working on Madge’s latest, and how it all came to be: “It was good. I was in here doing a meeting or something and she was working with Diplo. They were like, “Oh, maybe you can play some piano on this thing.” And I was like, “Alright. I’ll try. If you hate it you can take it off.” It was just like that, casual and cool,” she explains. Casual and cool, indeed!

We all know how talented Keys is when it comes to the keys, so here’s hoping her cameo makes the final cut…whenever that album finally drops.
