It’s been 13 years since the 15-time Grammy winner released her debut Songs In A Minor, but she still has a lot more to do. “It’s incredible because every day is a new chance and an opportunity,” she said. “I feel like I haven’t even really gotten started.”

Her second child is due in December, and motherhood has played a pivotal role in her music. “I’ve always been an empathetic person, I’ve always related to what we’ve gone through as a humanity, but when you start seeing your kids in the mix and what they’re gonna grow up in and what they’re gonna be a part of, or how they can help change it, you get fiercer about it.”
