Alicia Keys Talks Clive Davis, Swizz Beatz, and More on "Oprah's Master Class"

Alicia Keys sat down with Oprah for the season premier of Oprah's Master Class. While the episode airs on March 3, Oprah has uploaded some footage on her television channel's YouTube page. The singer speaks on stepping inside Clive Davis's office for the first time and being impressed by all of the pictures on the exec's walls, each with previous artists Davis had worked with.

In another clip, she talks about her relationship with her husband and super-producer Swizz Beatz, saying that "He's just bubbling over with life." Meanwhile, in the third clip, Keys explains Columbia Records enticed her to sign her first deal with a white baby grand piano. When she signed the contract, the label did give her a piano, but it was not the same white-colored one. She still has it to this day.

As an added bonus, OWN also uploaded footage of Alicia's first appearance on the Oprah Show back in 2001.
