    Default alicia Keys-New York

    First of all, I'm a hard rock guy. Always have been. I'll probably get flamed for this, but this morning, on my clock radio, This solos version of the song came on. Just her on piano for most of it. I've known of her work, and aware of her talent, and I'd only heard the version of this song with Jayzee. Click!
    I heard this version this morning, and was blown away. She sings this song so powerfully and from the heart. No effects, just an incredible performance. I'm not for sappy sentimental tunes, but this is just simply an incredible version. She doesn't oversing it like alot of R&B singers these days do, and you can honestly hear some of that street toughness come through in the chorus. it's got a real unconventional flow as well, but she makes it work. Combine it with the video below, and it's twice as good. I don't care what music it is; Talent is talent.
    New Yorkers should be proud!

    That's cool. Yeah, I was totally moved by this song. Maybe it just hit me off guard, but I can't honestly think of a song that hit me this way in a long time no matter the genre. Good music is good music. Period. Ehhh! Maybe I'm just gettin' old. lol

    Absolutely!!

    And um....when is getting older a problem??? Older men, me, sigh............................Age is just a number. It ain't what's inside, and that's the MOST important!

    I can't remember the name of the duet she did with Usher, but it is SUCH a great song too!!!

    Because nothing screams SENSUALITY like Alicia Keys!!!




    Seriously, Sleeper....Ms. Keys is held in high regard by musicians of any genre. No need to be shy about your appreciation for her!

    God! This brought a tear to my eye and made me miss this place so much more. We have got to get back to visit soon!

    It took me forever to come down from the high that is NY last time. I heard the other version as well and was not all that impressed but this version...damn!

    Should have released it like this the first time. Much more powerful! Thanks for sharing that.

    I totally agree. The version with Jayzee did'nt do it for me though I always liked Keys' part, but yeah...this version IMO is the way it should have been from the start. And keeping in mind this vid is a one shot live performance....Man, the girls got an amazing connection and nails it flawlessly. I love that on the edge quality to her voice, like if she pushed it, she'd crack, but her control is amazing. You just don't see a lot of young singers these days so in the pocket. Plus the song itself lyrically nails NY. Like despite it's beauty, or ugliness, it's still home. Can apply to alot of cities. Mine included.

    I used to suffer through the song in order to hear the chorus. Then someone at work played this version about a month ago and I was floored. It is on heavy rotation on the iPhone.

    really cool city - great tune. I do like that Alicia Keys - nice Italian girl. Knew that girl was something special the first time I heard "A Woman's Worth"

    Always liked Alicia Keys. Enjoyed the Jay Z version of this song (not much of a Hip Hop guy, but ok with Jay Z), but this blows it out of the water. Good stuff
    Don't drink the Jim Jones punch. They're called theToxic Twins for a reason...
