The Grammy-winning singer’s latest album Girl On Fire debut at number one last week after selling more than 160,000 copies in its first week of release.

In her spread, the 31-year-old singer discussed how she make it through Hurricane Sandy living in Soho, New York.

“After the third or fourth tuna fish sandwich, and after we learned we’d be without power for a week, I called my mother, who lives Uptown,” Alicia Keys said. “She was okay and hadn’t lost any power, so we ended up going to her house. We were pretty lucky.”
