Alicia Augello Cook (born January 25, 1981), better known by her stage name Alicia Keys, is an American recording artist, musician and actress. She was raised by a single mother in the Hell's Kitchen area of Manhattan in New York, where Keys made a television appearance on The Cosby Show at the age of four. She attended Professional Performing Arts School and graduated at 16. She later attended Columbia University before dropping out to pursue her music career. Keys released her debut album with J Records, having had previous record deals first with Columbia and then Arista Records.

Keys' debut album, Songs in A Minor, was a commercial success, selling over 12 million copies worldwide. She became the best-selling new artist and best-selling R&B artist of 2001. The album earned Keys five Grammy Awards in 2002, including Best New Artist and Song of the Year for "Fallin'". Her second studio album, The Diary of Alicia Keys, was released in 2003 and was also another success worldwide, selling eight million copies. The album garnered her an additional four Grammy Awards in 2005. Later that year, she released her first live album, Unplugged, which debuted at number one in the United States. She became the first female to have an MTV Unplugged album to debut at number one and the highest since Nirvana in 1994.

Keys made guest appearances in several television series in the following years. She made her film debut in Smokin' Aces and went on to appear in The Nanny Diaries in 2007. Her third studio album, As I Am, was released in the same year and sold six million copies worldwide, earning Keys an additional three Grammy Awards. The following year, she appeared in The Secret Life of Bees, which earned her a nomination at the NAACP Image Awards. Throughout her career, Keys has won numerous awards and has sold over 30 million albums worldwide, establishing herself as one of the best-selling artists of her time.

Η Alicia Keys επιφυλάσσει εκπλήξεις



Μπορεί το Madison Square Garden να ήταν κατάμεστο από τον κόσμο που πήγε να ακούσει την Alicia Keys, αλλά προσπαθήστε να φανταστείτε τι έγινε όταν ξαφνικά στη σκηνή εμφανίστηκε η Beyonce...

Το ενθουσιασμένο πλήθος άκουσε τις δύο τραγουδίστριες να ερμηνεύουν την μουσική τους συνεργασία "Put It In a Love Song" και πραγματικά τις αποθέωσε.

Φαντάσου τι θα γίνει με την κυκλοφορία του video για το συγκεκριμένο τραγούδι τον ερχόμενο μήνα!

Αναβολή για Beyonce και Alicia Keys





Μπορεί τα γυρίσματα στο Rio να ήταν χρονοβόρα και επίπονα, κυρίως για την τσέπη των παραγωγών, αλλά παρά την υπερπροσπάθεια, το video για το κομμάτι "Put It In a Love Song", δεν θα κυκλοφορήσει ακόμα.

Ο λόγος είναι απλός και επιχειρηματικός, μια και η Alicia Keys αποφάσισε να κρατήσει το video με την Beyonce για αργότερα, προωθώντας τα υπόλοιπα τραγούδια της αρχικά.


¶λλωστε είναι σίγουρο ότι με την Bee στο clip, θα έχει μια σίγουρη επιτυχία!
