Alicia Keys says her “relentless” desire to stay on top of the music world almost destroyed her.
The R&B singer says she was only saved after her grandmother’s battle with cancer reminded the 27-year-old what really mattered and she forced herself to slow down.
Keys said: "That's exactly what it was. That's why I had to totally, completely stop. I'm used to constantly going on to the next thing, but I realised at that moment, 'Man, this is it, this is all I have.'"
