As I Am

ak1Keys releases As I Am, her second studio album. Popular hits on this album includes No One which was Keys first single, followed by Like You’ll Never See Me Again, Teenage Love Affair, and Superwoman. As I Am sold over five million copies worldwide. Keys collaborated with John Mayer, Linda Perry, and Jack Splash.

Even when I’m singing on record there’s a lot of times when I’ll fight for a bit of imperfection. I might not have quite hit the note to the perfect pitch but there was a soul in there and feeling that, to me, delivers the emotion of that moment. For me, doing a show, the excitement of singing live, and the possibility that you’re not gonna be perfect – that’s the thrill of it.

O Magazine interview


Keys speaks about why she left Columbia Records in an interview for O Magazine.

Once I saw that these people were completely disrespecting my musical creativity. I was devastated and crushed, like a blooming flower that’s trampled on. Nothing hurts more. I’m fortunate that my manager was confident. Some of our incredible legends will die with nothing. They were jerked.

Single Release

The artist releases her single, Fallin’, from her album, Songs In A Minor.

There were so many people who didn’t believe in it, because it went so much against the state of radio at the time. And just the journey of writing it -- about how when you love someone but you’re in and out, the struggle… When I sing it, I remember the years and years it took to get to a place where people would hear it, and I’m just so grateful.
