Music Spotlight: Alicia Keys

I recently watched Alicia Keys’ iHeart Radio Music Awards performance with her son and it brought me to tears. It also made me want to relive some of her best musical moments, so I decided to write this post.

The New Yorker has immense talent, from her classically-trained piano skills to her angelic voice. She exudes passion and charisma in both her music and her life.

Here are my top 5 Alicia Keys Tracks:

Blended Family (What You Do For Love) ft. A$AP Rocky

Favorite lyrics:

“And even though I married your father
That’s not the only reason I’m here for ya”

Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart

Favorite lyrics:

“So rather than hold on to a broken dream I’ll just hold on to love
And I could find a way to make it, don’t hold on too tight
I’ll make it without you tonight”

No One

Favorite lyrics:

“You and me together
Through the days and nights
I don’t worry ’cause
Everything’s going to be alright”


Favorite lyrics:

“What goes around, comes around
What goes up, must come down
Now who’s cryin’, desirin’ to come back to me”

Brand New Me

Favorite lyrics:

“If you were a friend, you’d want to get know me again
If you were worth the while
You’d be happy to see me smile
I’m not expecting sorry
I’m too busy finding myself”
