In an Instagram post, Diamond expressed his gratitude to Alicia Keys for allowing him feature on the project.
“It's a Privilege and Honored to be featured in this iconic Album of the Queen....Thank you @aliciakeys and my brother @therealswizzz for believing in me..... I really can't wait for the Album to be out this Friday Sept 18th,” he posted.
