Going by the album cover, it’s pretty obvious what this record entails: Alicia Keys lays herself bare with an album that shows all the different facets of her personality. Often, when an artist makes introspection so explicit it’s a bad sign. People who want to find themselves too much risk sounding a bit unoriginal and generic. But there are exceptions to every rule. ALICIA is actually a wonderfully unique album which manages - contrary to the singer’s other records - to venture down many different avenues without constantly trying to induce tears.


 


Between the Jamaican influences of Wasted Energy and Solange-inspired melodies, Alicia Keys often manages to abandon her piano (her favourite instrument) to concentrate not on vocal performance or positivity speeches but on an openness found in a lot of recent R&B. The result? Brilliant electronic tracks such as Authors of Forever or Me x 7, featuring Tierra Wack who drops a short but stunning verse. And let’s not forget the other guests. We find a selection of talented artists from Jill Scott (on Jill Scott) to Sampha (3 Hour Drive) and Snoh Aalegra (You Save Me), as well as smoother, more kitschy collaborations with Miguel (Show Me Love) and Khalid (So Done). While she occasionally goes back to basics with piano-voice tracks like Perfect Way to Die or Good Job, Alicia Keys reveals here her most authentic and musically-engaging album to date. © Brice Miclet/Qobuz

How Kanye West Turned Hip-hop on its Head

Over the last twenty years, Kanye West has consistently changed the course of rap music and influenced his era’s pop scene like no other. Collaborating with Paul McCartney, Rick Rubin, and Rihanna, he has both revitalized the careers of Jay-Z and Common and provided a platform for Kid Cudi and John Legend. Kanye West remains a major influence on artists such as Childish Gambino, Drake and The Weeknd. Cast yourself back to the career of an endlessly enigmatic artist.

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Despite having disappeared from the music scene for years, Betty Davis remains a pioneer of feline soul sisters. The ultimate funk goddess. She also brought electricity to a certain Miles Davis who she would go on to marry, if only for a short while. But who are you Betty?

What's Going On, Marvin ?

Once upon a time there was "What's Going On", one of the greatest soul album. Or how Marvin Gaye changed the history of the Motown label and popular music in the seventies...
