Not only did she let audiences know the wait is over, but she let them know she’ll be performing her new music in a few weeks on the May 7 episode of Saturday Night Live.

“What’s going on Snap Chat world? So I’ve been dying to share some news with you for a while. You’ve been asking and asking and it’s finally real. That’s right, I have new music to share with you and I’m going to be performing in the next couple of weeks. Oh my, God!”

Excited for her SNL performance, Keys continued celebrating the news on Snap. “That’s right, I’ll be performing my new music in my city – my hometown city – the best city in the world to me…on an iconic New York stage.”

Keys’ untitled upcoming project will be her first since her 2012 LP, Girl on Fire. She is currently in the studio working with Pharrell and her hubby, Swizz Beatz.
