This opening piano trill is the work of the incomparable Alicia Keys – did you guess it right?

A classically trained pianist, Keys began composing songs at the age of 12 and landed his first recording contract at just 15. The New York native, born Alicia Augello Cook, changed her last name to Keys, fittingly branding herself as a piano virtuoso.

After disputes with his first label, Columbia, Keys released his first album, Songs in A minor with J Records in 2001. The album was critically acclaimed and a commercial success, selling over 12 million copies worldwide. The album spawned his Billboard Hot 100 hit, “Fallin,” and won him five of his 15 Grammy Awards.

His follow-up album, Alicia Keys Diary, was released in 2003 to widespread acclaim again. “If I Aint Got You” was the album’s second single, peaking at number 4 on the US charts.

Keys said the song was inspired by Aaliyah’s death, the September 11 attacks and other devastating world events of the time. She said the song is about “how material things don’t feed the soul”.

The song stayed atop the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop charts for six weeks and earned her two Grammy nominations, including her win for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.

In addition to her musical talents, Keys has been honored for her humanitarian efforts and was named a Conscience Ambassador by Amnesty International in 2017. She also co-founded and is the Global Ambassador for the non-profit “Keep a Child Alive”. ”

She recently released a stripped down version of her 2 collaboration track with Kanye West and Fivio Foreign. The reimagined track features newly written verses that pay homage to his hometown, New York. Listen to it below.
