RCA/LEGACY GETS A NEW SET OF KEYS

Has it really been 20 years since that brilliant young Alicia Keys dropped her album Songs in A Minor? No, it's impossible that so much time could have elapsed... let me just look in the mirror for a moment and OH MY GOD I'M ANCIENT.  

But enough about me. As it happens, Alicia's superb, chart-topping, Diamond-certified, Grammy-dominating set dropped in June of 2001; to commemorate the anniversary, RCA/Legacy is rolling out not one but two special editions on 6/4. The standard edition includes two bonus tracks from the original sessions, “Foolish Heart” and “Crazy (Mi Corazon)." A special two-LP version on green-and-black vinyl with pop-up art can be pre-ordered here.

The news comes, of course, on the first day of Black Music Month.

Keys has been on a multimedia spree to promote the release, including providing commentary to accompany the new edition that will be streamable exclusively via TidalA dedicated website, meanwhile, enables fans to write letters to Keys. 

The singer/songwriter and virtuoso pianist (who subsequently dazzled as awards-show host) clearly tricked us by not aging visibly over the past two decades.
