Keys, Alicia : A Woman's Worth
One album and a couple of singles into her career and she’s already at the pinnacle...
At just 20 years old, Alicia Keys potential knows no limits because her present form is so far ahead of the soul power pack. Here her voice lifts off from a simple electric piano riff, soars around Venus and plummets back to earth with a simple message. That message is treat the women in your life well, men, because you underestimate them at your peril. It’s undeniably good advice, but probably not something that will ever concern Keys.
Her glittering value is packaged and racked throughout the Western hemisphere for all to see. One album and a couple of singles into her career and she’s already at the pinnacle. Where to from here?
