Alicia Keys, The Diary of Alicia Keys (2003)
Label: J Records
Alicia Keys really took off as an artist who captivated us with her skills on the ivories. If there's one Keys album to put on rotation, it's this combination of classic-sounding R&B and old-school soul that brims with emotion. 2001's Songs In A Minor was a major debut that won her five Grammy Awards. The Diary Of Alicia Keys was growth in finding her earnest voice that we all love.
