Producer: Alicia Keys
Album: The Diary of Alicia Keys

Years after releasing "If I Ain't Got You," Keys said the track was inspired by Aaliyah. “The song idea came together right after Aaliyah passed away. It was such a sad time and no one wanted to believe it. It just made everything crystal clear to me—what matters, and what doesn’t,” Keys said. Her vocal range and the record's irresistible chords led the track and earned her a Grammy for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.
