OMG!! Seems crazy for ppl with nearly zeroo experience and no school to assume roles like this at major companies. Pharrell is the creative director at Karmaloop and Alicia’s husband, Swizz Beatz has similar roles at both Rebok and Aston Martin. Sometimes celebrity is enough to push you through the competition! We’re so proud of Alicia, een though her album didn’t live up to out expectations, she is becoming a business one, planting the seeds of an empire!

Our friends at RapUp report the following of Alicia’s new role at BlackBerry. Robert Rodriguez; director of 300 and Sin City has also be given a role within the couple along with a few other celebs. It appear BlackBerry is quite serious about competing with Apple and all the devices offered on the Android Market:

Alicia shared her excitement over her new job. “I have been using theBlackBerry 10 for a few weeks now, and I’m truly inspired by its innovation,” she said. “It has entirely revolutionized the experience. I know the potential this platform has to help creative people be more productive, and help productive people be more creative. This is such an incredible age to be living in, with such profound advances in communications andtechnology. As Global Creative Director, my goal is to inspire creativity with this platform, and I’m so excited to jump right in.”

YESSS!!! It’s been confirmed; Alicia Keys will sing the half time show at this years superbowl game!! As we all know, Beyonce will be headlining the half time show, should be EPIC!!

We love Alicia but she’s had some questionable vocal performances over the last couple of years, many argue that she’s lost a great deal of her voice. We hope she can pull it all together and kill the national anthem!

It reminds me of a Sade visual, the simplicity and sincere nature of it.. We like the song but the version with Nicki Minaj should have been the one promoted… We’re going to be talking more about Alicia Keys and the evolution of her music later this month.

Peep the video below:

Ugh…… It’s trash…… We don’t like the title and now the cover gets to match.. We love Alicia Keys, her voices, her music, her writing but this cover…. no ma’am!

The album will drop 11.27.12 and the new single will premiere at the VMAs this next month. We wish her all the best but as of right now, we’re not excited about this project..

Hmmmmm….. “Girl”? We think “Woman On Fire” would have been a more fitting title for this 5th studio effort but we aren’t on payroll at J Records so….. lol… We love Alicia, love “New Day”, just hope this album is really about new beginning like she recently discussed via her website..

The first 2 albums were EPIC, timeless studio efforts but the last 2, while containing great music, seemed forced… We’re looking forward to hearing more from and about the project!

Alicia Keys “New Day” New Single & 2012 Album!!!

Alicia Keys makes her return with “New Day”, an upbeat, soulful, party track that sounds like the production work of husband, Swizz Beatz!

We love Alicia BUT we have mixed feelings about this track.. It’s fire, don’t get us wrong but the first 3 albums were lead but incredibly transparent, intimate, soulful ballads.. “Fallen”, “You Don’t Know My Name”, “No One”… This song is NOTHING like those pieces.. Again, we love it but it’s a little trendy, like she’s trying to reach her fans and ppl that never really f**** wit her before, the beginning of a cross over…. 

Albums due this year, late, probably between Halloween and Thanksgiving so we shoud get at least one more single and maybe a few leaks before album is officiall on shelves, hope the soulish r&b is still in tact..

Alicia Keys Working With Adele On 5th Album!!!

If Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz can help it, we may hear a possible duet on her forthcoming album with British Songstress Adele. Keys recently revealed that Swizz has been pushing for the collaboration, which she says is “definitely a possibility.” 

“I think he started that! Look at this guy he’s like a rumor starter!” Keys spills about her husband on the red carpet of her recent Keep A Child Alive Black Ball gala in London. But Swizz plans to carry out his ploy adding, “And I’m trying to finish it!” 

Nevertheless, Keys has high hopes about possibly working with Adele, dubbing the soul singer “special.” 

“Listen, Adele is one of our favorite artists and I think she’s very special and she has a beautiful style about her,” says Keys. “I think there’s definitely a possibility for us to do something together.” 

In related news, Adele continues her rain on the Billboard Hot 200 charts, snagging the No. 1 spot this week after losing out to Lady Gaga for the past two weeks. The “Rolling in the Deep” hitmaker moved another 114,000 copies of her new album ’21,’ which now sits around 2.2 million units sold in the U.S. This feat also marks Adele’s 10th non-consecutive week on the first position on the U.S. Album chart.

YESSSSSS!!!!!!!! Two great song writers with similar styles. We’re going to get something like Christina Aguilera’s “Impossible” (Alicia produced). The idea of Swizz being on the sound board for this collaboration makes it even more exciting! These 3 are 3 of my favorites!

Alicia Keys “Songz In A Minor” 10 Year Anniversary Documentary Preview!!!

Posted in ALBUMS, ALICIA KEYS, J RECORDS, NEW ALBUMS, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , on June 10, 2011 by JupiterDaTruth

In all the years I’ve been listening to music only a few artist are definable to me as the absolute TRUTH; Amy Winehouse, Mariah Carey, Lauryn Hill, Kanye West, Adele and Alicia Keys. No one that has come up in the last 10 years is more the truth then Alicia. She’s made timeless music from day one and is one of the biggest and brightest jewels in modern music, a true ICON! 

She’s re-releasing the icon debut album “Songz In A Minor” and though I’ve had the album since it came out (birthday present from my parents when I turned 14) I can’t wait to hear it again because the music has truly gotten better with each passing year. Four great albums and her debut is still her greatest credit. I’m so grateful for Alicia Keys and what she does…

Alicia Keys Re-Releasing “Songs In A Minor” On june 28th!!!

In a recent interview with W Magazine Alicia talked about her plans to re-release the iconic “Songs In A Minor”. June 28th 2011 is the 10 year anniversary of the critically acclaimed projects release. 

This deluxe edition will give fans a real glimpse in the making of the project — and ultimately the making of a superstar — as it contains early demos, alternate takes of songs, and even live recordings.

Alicia had the following to say of the re-release:

“How terrible would it have been if I had come out with some watered-down version of who I am?” she says. “People fell in love with the real me, and I still feel blessed that that was how the journey began.”

Alicia Keys is who should have won the Billboard Millenium Award!!! Whose been more consistent this decade, whose created more timeless, uncompromising music then Alicia Keys. She is truly an icon and her music will live FOREVER!

Oh and Beyonce’s “4” will also drop on 6.28.2011, wouldn’t it be some sh** if Alicia debuts at #1 that week lol!

Alicia Keys New Music “Speechless” Ft Eve!!!

WOW! I love this song. She’s at such a beautiful place right now, new husband, new baby, so happy, so proud of you Alicia! CONGRATULATIONS SHAWTY!

I don’t know if this is just a single or if it’s apart of a new studio album. “The Element of Freedom” isn’t even a year old though. Hopefully we’ll be hearing some more new music from Ms Beatz!

Alicia Keys, Gaga, Kim Kardasian & Others To Log Off Twitter For Charity!!!

Posted in ADS AND ENDORSEMENTS, ALICIA KEYS, BILLBOARD, CHARITIES, kim kardasian, lady gaga, MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , on November 30, 2010 by JupiterDaTruth

Alicia Keys and Lady Gaga take charity work seriously, and they’re going offline to prove it.

Gaga, Justin TimberlakeUsher and other celebrities have joined a new campaign called Digital Life Sacrifice on behalf of Keys’ charity, Keep a Child Alive. The entertainers plan to sign off of social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter on Wednesday, which is World AIDS Day. The participants will sign back on when the charity raises $1 million.

“It’s really important and super-cool to use mediums that we naturally are on,” Keys said in a phone interview from New York last week.

For the campaign – which also includes Jennifer Hudson, Ryan Seacrest, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Elijah Wood, Serena Williams, Janelle Monae and Keys’ husband, Swizz Beatz – celebrities have filmed “last tweet and testament” videos and will appear in ads showing them lying in coffins to represent what the campaign calls their digital deaths.

“It’s so important to shock you to the point of waking up,” Keys said. “It’s not that people don’t care or it’s not that people don’t want to do something, it’s that they never thought of it quite like that.”

The campaign, she said, puts the disease in perspective.

“This is such a direct and instantly emotional way and a little sarcastic, you know, of a way to get people to pay attention,” said Keys, who has more than 2.6 million followers on Twitter.

The foundation, which began in 2003, will accept donations through text messages and bar-code technology, which is featured in the charity’s Buy Life campaign. Raised efforts support families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.

“We’re trying to sort of make the remark: Why do we care so much about the death of one celebrity as opposed to millions and millions of people dying in the place that we’re all from?” said Leigh Blake, the president and co-founder of Keep a Child Alive.

“It’s about love and respect and human dignity,” she added.

Keys said recruiting celebrities was difficult because of scheduling, but “once I got people on the phone and I was able to paint the concept for them, everybody was in.”

Not one person said no, Keys recalled.

“I have a feeling that Gaga is going to raise it all by herself,” Blake said. Lady Gaga has more than 7.2 million followers on Twitter, and nearly 24 million fans on Facebook.

“She’s got a very, very mobilized fan base and that’s beautiful to watch I think (and) she’s able to draw their attention to these issues that are very important, you know, and that people follow it and act.”

Keys is hoping more people – both famous folks and non-celebs – get involved once the new initiative launches: “It just doesn’t have to be just because you’re a celebrity or something like that. It can be anybody.”

Keys, 29, married rapper-producer Swizz Beatz in July. The two had their first son, Egypt, last month. The Grammy winner said that though her life’s getting busier, being a mother and wife makes her want to help others even more.

“As a human being, you deserve to have a chance at life,” she said.

This is a really great idea. I wonder how long it’ll take them to raise the million! Great cause!

Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys became romantically involved around May of 2009 and announced their engagement in May of 2010, when it was also revealed that Keys was pregnant.

“I’m so thankful for everything I been blessed with in my life wowwwwww,” Swizz Beatz tweeted.

The child the first for Alicia Keys and the fourth for Swizz Beatz, who also has three other children.

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz were married in August, in a lavish ceremony on the Mediterranean.

Yesssss!!!! I’m so happy for them!

Swizz and Alicia celebrated there love for eachother formally on a huge yacht in Italy the other day, officially tying the not! Alicia has a baby on the way and it seems like a purely story book situation for her!  CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Two of the most brilliant minds in modern music!!!

From an Insider:

Obviously because Swizz and AK aren’t Italian citizens, they got officially hitched in the Tri-State area before leaving for Europe. And at that small ceremony, the bride reportedly wore Vera Wang, the groom wore Tom Ford, and, of course, the footwear was all Louboutin (Swizz’s friend and collaborator*). Meanwhile Swizz celebrated with not one but two bachelor parties, one in New York and one on Friday (July 30) at Sardinia’s legendary Billionaire Club (owned by Formula One scion Flavio Briatore and home to the $50k Cristal methuselahs)*.

Alicia Keys Fires Long Time Manager!!!

Jeff Robinson, CEO of MBK Entertainment Inc., and 12 time Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys have decided to change the structure of their business relationship. Robinson and Keys will continue to collaborate and produce future albums together through MBK/J Records while Alicia will now oversee all aspects of her own personal career.

MBK Entertainment Inc. has been the management firm for Alicia Keys since she was a teenager-guiding every facet of her career, including the international success of her Grammy Award winning, multi-platinum albums, films and branding opportunities. Keys and Robinson have been partners for over a decade and would like opportunities to pursue other endeavors. Their decision is mutually agreed upon and amicable.

The decision will allow Alicia more control over all aspects of her career from singing and songwriting, to leading many business ventures and social causes. Keys’ company, AK Worldwide, will now have responsibility and oversight for Alicia’s touring, endorsements, sponsorships, licensing, new business development, television and film ventures.

MBK, a multifaceted entertainment company with a film, television, publishing and independent marketing divisions, will have the opportunity to focus on developing the careers of new, young talented artists such as Elle Varner and Gabi Wilson. The company will also delve deeper into the gospel music format with their newly formed Glory to Glory Records.

Hmmmmmm, well not fired but she’s definitely reduced his responsibilities by more then half. I hope she knows what she’s doing. She’s never really flopped, as a matter of fact, “The Element of Freedom” is the closest thing to a flop Alicia’s ever experienced (chose the wrong first single). Longevity like that has to do MUCHO with the people around you, your team, your management and all that good stuff. I’m sure Clive won’t let her f*** things up.
