De Amerikaanse Alicia Cook schrijft haar eerste liedje Butterflyz als ze 14 jaar oud is. Het nummer krijgt een plekje op haar wereldwijde debuutalbum Songs In A Minor dat zes jaar later, in 2001, verschijnt. In ons land wordt dat album dubbel platina en de eerste single, Fallin’, staat vier weken boven aan de Top 40.

In 2003 verschijnt haar tweede album, The Diary Of Alicia Keys, waarvan You Don’t Know My Name als eerste single haar vijfde hit in ons land wordt. Na een MTV Unplugged-album volgt in 2007 haar derde studioalbum, As I Am, waarvan No One haar tweede notering in de top 3 wordt. Daarna verschijnen verschillende singles die matige resultaten in de Top 40 opleveren.

Anders is dat in 2009 met Empire State Of Mind (samen met Jay-Z) dat op nummer 2 weet te komen. Het overtreft het resultaat van Fallin' en is vanaf dat moment het grootste succes van de zangeres in ons land. In 2012 is Girl On Fire voor Keys haar 18e hit in de Top 40.

In 2014 maakt ze, samen met Kendrick Lamar, met It’s On Again een track voor de film The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Pharrell Williams tekent voor de productie van het nummer.

Met In Common treedt Alicia Keys in mei 2016 op tijdens de finale van de Champions League in Milaan (Real Madrid — Atlético Madrid). Het nummer verschijnt als voorloper van haar langverwachte zesde studioalbum. Ook zal ze te zien zijn als coach in het elfde seizoen van de Amerikaanse The Voice.


Songtekst

Weren't you the one who said that you don't want me anymore,
And how you need your space, and give the keys back to your door?
And how I cried and tried and tried to make you stay with me.
But still you said that love was gone and that I had to leave.

(Now you)
{Talkin' 'bout a family.}
(Now you)
{Sayin' I complete your dream.}
(Now you)
{Sayin' I'm your everything.}
{You're confusing me, what you say to me.}

Don't play with me, don't play with me.

'Cause

(What goes around comes around;
What goes up must come down.)
Now who's cryin,' desirin' to come back to me?
(What goes around comes around;
What goes up must come down.)
Now who's cryin,' desirin' to come back?

I remember when
I was sittin' home alone,
Waitin' for you
'Til three o'clock in the morn.

And when you came home you'd always had some sorry excuse,
And explainin' to me, like I'm was some kind of a fool.
I sacrificed the things I wanted to do things for you.
But when it's time to do for me, you never come through.

(Now you)
{Wanna be a part of me.}
(Now you)
{Have so much to say to me.}
(Now you)
{Wanna make time for me.}
{What you do to me, you're confusin' me.}

Don't play with me, don't play with me.

'Cause

(What goes around comes around;
What goes up must come down.)
Now who's cryin,' desirin' to come back to me?
(What goes around comes around;
What goes up must come down.)
Now who's cryin,' desirin' to come back?

I remember when I was sittin' home alone,
Waitin' for you
'Til three o'clock in the morn,
Night after night, knowin' somethin' goin' on.
Wasn't home before I be goin', goin' gone.

Lord knows it wasn't easy, believe me.
Never thought you'd be the one that would deceive me
And never do what you supposed to do.
No need to hose me, fool, 'cause I'm over you.

'Cause

(What goes around comes around;
What goes up must come down)
Now who's cryin,' desirin' to come back to me?
(What goes around comes around;
What goes up must come down)
Gotta stop tryin' to come back to me.

(What goes around comes around;
What goes up must come down)
It's called karma, baby,
And it goes around.

(What goes around comes around;
What goes up must come down)
Now who's cryin,' desirin' to come back to me?
