Alicia Keys stops by the SiriusXM studios in New York to promote her new album “Here.”

Alicia Keys laughs as she remembers the Kid-N-Play pajama birthday party her husband Swiss Beatz surprised her with a few years ago. Everyone wore pajamas — including the legendary DJ Kid Capri, who was spinning all night in a Mickey Mouse pajama suit.

“Do you all know how ill of artist and DJ Kid Capri is? You know that part in a party … when you are like … I need to take five minutes to go get some water or a drink … I kept saying I was going to take a break and every song he played I was back … Your crown is so secure on your head it’s a blessing to sit next to you,” Keys said to SiriusXM’s newest hip-hop host.

As her new album “Here” dropped Friday (Nov. 4), the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter joined Kid Capri at SiriusXM for a special interview to air on Kid Capri’s Block Party, which debuts Saturday (Nov. 5) on FLY (Ch. 47).
