Alicia Keys – Songs In A Minor is a wonderful album laced with beautiful piano ballads, love songs, and pop ballads. The album has timeless pop songs such as Fallin’, A Woman’s Worth, and Rock wit U were included on the album. Those timeless pop songs are what helped the album age great like wine. You can tell by listening to the songs that she puts all of her heart and soul into her songs.
Songs In A Minor helped Alicia Keys have a successful run during the early part of the 21st century. She stayed afloat and relevant by penning top charting songs everyone can relate to. Alicia was a hit machine when she was younger. Not only that, this album of hers are laced with beautiful piano ballads. Her talent easily shows whenever she plays the piano. Those piano ballads made the album enjoyable.
Alicia performs her own rendition of Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Piano Sonata No. 14” aka “Moonlight Sonata” in both C-sharp minor and in A minor on Piano & I. The usage of a “minor” scale gave this song a fundamental musical background.
Alicia inspires to keep on perspiring in Piano & I. Alicia proves you can’t go wrong when you try. You always got to try. No matter how long that shit take. Whatever stops you from dreaming. Whatever tries to stop you from living. You always got to try. What you waiting on?
Jane Doe was the 2001 version of the Boy Is Mine. The song is an Alicia Keys and Kandi Burruss (Kandi) duo where both of them fight over a man they both love. This of course creates a vicious love triangle.
These Jane Does are killing Alicia thinking they’re slick with it. Let’s talk about the situation. It’s negative in every which way. Kandi is dissing Alicia’s man and their relationship. Kandi say he’s cheating and wants Kandi to leave him. However Alicia has her mind set on staying with him instead. Listening to Kandi will leave her lonely. That’s not what Alicia is trying to be. Alicia will be crazy to let her man go. And let some other Jane Doe come and try to steal him.
Alicia caught Kandi trying to check her man out like she wouldn’t know. Alicia tells Kandi to leave her and her man alone Alicia tells Kandi, “Girl, I think it’s time for you to go away from my man and me. That’s the way it’s gonna be.” Alicia also tells her, “I love my man.” Kandi says to her, “He loves me more.” Alicia tells her, “He may not be the perfect man, but I don’t plan to let him go for.”
Alicia tells men how to treat a woman right on A Woman’s Worth. Men, you know you want to please, want to keep, and want to treat your woman right. Not just dough, but to show that you know she is worth your time. A real man knows a real woman when he sees her. No need to read between the lines spelled out for you. Just hear this song ’cause you can’t go wrong when you value a woman’s worth.
You could buy a woman diamonds and pearls. Take her on a cruise around the world. Make her dinner lit by candles and run her bubble bath. Make love tenderly to last.You know she’s worth it.
Men, you know you want to please, want to keep, and want to treat your woman right. Not just dough, but to show that you know she is worth your time. You will lose if you choose to refuse to put her first. She will and she can find a man who knows her worth.
A real man knows a real woman when he sees her. A real woman knows a real man ain’t afraid to please her. A real woman knows a real man always comes first. A real man just can’t deny a woman’s worth.
If you treat Alicia fairly, she’ll give you all her goods. Treat you like a real woman should. She knows you’re worth it. She’ll hold you down when shit gets rough. She walks the mile, makes you smile, all the while being true. Don’t take for granted the passions that she has for you. You will lose if you choose to refuse to put her first. She will and she can find a man who knows her worth. No need to read between the lines spelled out for you. Just hear this song ’cause you can’t go wrong when you value a woman’s worth. Cherish that woman. It better be good for that woman.
I rate this album 5/5*****!!
