R+B star Alicia Keys insists she will never give up singing, even if she enjoys huge success as a Hollywood actress.
The FALLIN' singer plays a glamorous assassin in new film SMOKIN' ACES.
And although Keys has always dreamed of being a movie star, she has vowed to keep music her number one priority.
She says, "I need music - it helps me as a person. I'm working on my new album and I'm excited about it.
"I've been close to acting since I was a little girl. It's always been a part of my life. I was just waiting for the right time. It's exciting to enter another world where you are not yourself. You can dive 100 per cent into it and be totally liberated by it."
