First big break

She got a manager who helped her navigate the industry. She signed a record deal at fifteen years of age with Columbia records.

Unfortunately the record company tried to make her into a pop product – they tried to tell her how to dress, how to wear her hair and what music to perform. Fortunately keys was able to resist this sort of pop management and the label left her alone.

She ended up working from home, creating a mini studio in her small flat creating the kind of music she wanted to make.

Keys eventually left Columbia records and ended up with a new record label ‘J Records’ which fostered her creative independence.

Quotes from Alicia Keyes

“I’m not in contact with him. That’s fine. When I was younger, I minded about that. [It] made me angry. But it helped show me what a strong woman my mother was, and made me want to be strong like her. Probably, it was better for me this way.”

“I grew up in the middle of everything. I walked the streets alone, I rode the trains alone, I came home at three in the morning alone, that was what I did…The city had a huge influence on me because it’s such a diverse place. As hard as growing up in it was, I always felt very blessed about being able to recognize different cultures and styles, people and places. I feel like the concrete alone just gave me a certain drive. I really saw everything: every negative I could possibly see from the time I could walk until now; and also every positive, every bright future, every dream that I could possibly see. So growing up around this big dichotomy definitely influenced my music.”

“I saw a variety of people growing up, and lifestyles, lows and highs. I think it makes you realise right away what you want and what you don’t want”

That type of studying, that type of discipline…after a while, I realized what it provided me – focus, the ability to pay attention for a long enough period of time to make progress; the work ethic; the actual knowledge of music, that then unlocked the ability to write my own music, put my own chords and things I heard in my own head to different lyrics that I maybe felt, and I never, ever had to wait for anybody to write something for me.

“Harlem raised me in a lot of ways,” taught me how to think fast, how to play the game…taught me leadership, how to get out of bad situations when you need to, how to hold my own.”

“It was a constant battle, it was a lot of -isms”

“There was the sexism, but it was more the ageism – you’re too young, how could you possibly know what you want to do? – and oh God, that just irked me to death, I hated that.”

“The music coming out was very disappointing”

“You have this desire to have something good, and you have thoughts and ideas, but when you finish the music it’s shit, and it keeps on going like that.”




Quotes about her

I remember that I felt, upon meeting her, that she was completely unique. I had never met a young R&B artist with that level of musicianship. So many people were just singing on top of loops and tracks, but she had the ability, not only to be part of hip-hop, but also to go way beyond that. She’s a very accomplished musician, songwriter and vocalist and a rare and unique talent.

Ebony magazine wrote that at the time “the music that was pumping on the airwaves was hip-hop and rap – not Alicia’s unique blend of classical meets soul, meets hip-hop, meets, well, Alicia. What could have been a recipe for disaster…turned into the opportunity of a lifetime.”

“does her own thing. She has set out her own vision. That’s the way it is for artists of her ilk…They don’t try to fit in. They try to establish their own paths…she has sure natural instinct and sure vision” and “a respect for musical history.”
