American singer/songwriter and pianist Alicia Keys became an international star in the early 2000s with her singular mix of classic and contemporary R&B. Behind the number one pop hit "Fallin'," her debut album, Songs in A Minor, sold more than 50,000 copies during its first day of availability in 2001 and eventually moved over ten million units worldwide, thus setting the stage for the then-20-year-old's career. Her 2003 sophomore follow-up, The Diary of Alicia Keys, cemented her popularity and she spent the next decade refining her signature sound, racking up platinum certifications with additional chart-toppers As I Am (2007) and Girl on Fire (2012). In addition to her solo efforts, Keys also collaborated on a number of notable hits with the likes of Jay-Z ("Empire State of Mind"), Jack White (the Bond theme "Another Way to Die"), Usher ("My Boo"), and more.
In early 2019, in conjunction with her hosting duties for the 61st Grammy Awards, Keys issued the jazzy single "Raise a Man" followed by "Show Me Love," which saw her team up with Miguel and guitarist Raphael Saadiq.
