Alicia Keys' 25 Favorite Albums

Frank Ocean, Nostalgia, Ultra (2011)

Label: Self-released
Alicia Keys: "Frank Ocean is someone who has this great storytelling style that really takes you from the beginning to the end and helps to open my mind to ways of relaying an emotion. Whenever I play this record it reminds me of my first anniversary, driving in a vintage Corvette that we rented. We blasted the album the whole way. Some of my favorites are 'Swim Good' and the lyrics of the song 'We All Try' always move me. It's such a hopeful song with deep sentiment—at the heart of it, we're all trying to do our best. And that's so true."
