Just because you haven’t heard another rendition of Alicia Keys’ latest single lately doesn’t mean the girl isn’t still on fire. A. Keys is one of three talented ladies covering Elle magazine’s May “Women in Music” issue.

According to the mag’s site:

For this year’s Women in Music Issue, the ELLE team traveled from L.A. to London to capture three of today’s brightest stars—Adele, Alicia Keys, and Rita Ora—for our rotating covers. How did we pull it off? Photographer Thomas Whiteside: “We photographed Adele at L.A.’s iconic EastWest Studios, where Frank Sinatra recorded his greatest hits….

Assistant Fashion Editor Sarah Schussheim: “Across the street, we shot Alicia on the rooftop of Siren Studios. She radiated cool New York glamour, relaxing and singing along to a Grace Jones album.” Photographer Doug Inglish: “Alicia brought her two-year-old son, Egypt, and played with him constantly.”

So far, Elle has only released Adele’s final cover, but Alicia Keys looks pretty gorgeous in this shot from inside the mag. MTV Style got a few additional insider details on her shoot, writing:

For Alicia’s shoot, she went ALL. OUT in a fiery red Jean Paul Gaultier turtleneck with a matching pout. According to the mag, she sang along to a Grace Jones album during the shoot to really channel that ’90s vibe, and we can tell!

So can we! These issues should hit newsstands any day now, but if you can’t wait, check out the shots of Adele and Rita Ora on the next couple pages.
