MUSIC FAB: Alicia Keys Releasing 10 Year Anniversary Album + Rihanna's "Man Down (Remix)" Ft. Eve

Alicia Keys has announced that she will release a special 10-year anniversary disc of her phenomenal debut LP Songs In A Minor.  Get the deets on the release inside, and hear Rihanna's new "Man Down (Remix)" track featuring Eve.....

It's hard to believe it's been ten years since Mrs. Keys-Beatz appeared on the scene.  And to celebrate her decade in the game, the actress, philatnthropist, singer, songwriter and producer will release a special 10th Anniversary Deluxe and Collector’s edition of Songs In A Minor.

The original album, which sold 12 million copies and earned Alicia five Grammys, will be re-released with previously unreleased and original bonus material, such as “A Woman’s Worth” remix featuring Nas, mixtape version of “Juiciest” ; “Fallin” the Ali soundtrack version; and the previously unreleased “Typewriter,” “If I Was Your Woman” Original Funky Demo version and "Butterflyz (The Drumline Mix)."

Sidenote: Butterflyz is still one of my fave A-Keys songs, so I love that she's putting out the even more sensual version featured in the Drumline movie.

The Deluxe Edition two-disc set and Collector’s Edition three-disc set will feature very special packaging and an enhanced booklet featuring new liner notes from Alicia and a documentary, specifically created for this release with brand new interviews with the singer and other album collaborators. 

Talking about the disc, Alicia said:

“It’s incredibly surreal for me to be celebrating the 10th anniversary of songs in A minor,” says Keys. “Looking back on the journey, I’m truly moved by my fans and friends who’ve been with me and have supported me throughout my career. This album is possibly the most precious to me, as your first album only happens once, and so songs in A minor will always hold a special place in my life that’s filled with amazing memories. I’m so proud that the songs are still being enjoyed around the world, and I’m crazy excited to share, through the 10th Anniversary Edition, songs never heard before, and even more of my debut album with you.”

 

Alicia plans to commemorate the 10th Anniversary by performing an intimate concert for her fans at New York City’s historic Beacon Theatre on June 30th. The show, titled “Piano & I: A One Night Only Event With Alicia Keys,” will feature Alicia performing solo with her piano.  She will tell stories and sing her classics. Tickets for the show will go on sale on May 6th via Ticket Master.

Also, she will perform on the BET Awards on June 26th and an hour-long special on Alicia will air on the network in late June around the album release.

Somebody's going to be a busy mama this summer.

 

And Rihanna has released the "Man Down" track from her LOUD album and Philly's finest, Eve, hopped on the track.  It may not be an official version, but worth the listen anyway.

Listen to Rihanna's "Man Down" (Remix) Ft. Eve above.

You babblers are too much.

You babblers are too much. While you all are most likely buying Chris Brown's and R.Kelly's albums, you put Alicia Keys done and won't support a great artist. I'm glad media is still riding with her and trying to save the small bit of great talent we have left. I never seen so many sinners try to preach morals to another sinner. Only on YBF. I WILL be buying this Alicia, thanks for 10 years of non stop, true music. I truly hope Mashonda has never done anything wrong as the way you guys uphold her as a saint. Get a life, stop hating and feeling like your sons are less than another.

Why is it that every article

Why is it that every article written about Alicia Keys on YBF is berated by comments about her personal, private life? MOVE ON, PEOPLE. If Mashonda has done it (like she claims to have), then it's time for the world to do the same. Let you who are without sin cast the first stone!

Honestly, I'm all for

Honestly, I'm all for expressing oneself and honesty but your anger toward these posts and people make this site a drag. Even though you are "anonymous" we can all pretty much tell by your language, inappropriate use of CAPS, and inexplicable anger that it is YOU/the same person trekking through all of these posts and leaving nasty, ignorant comments. There are some artists/celebs I support and like and other's i couldn't care less about but let's try to make this site, and really, the world around us a better place by being kind, logical, and happy people. It's frightening that for whatever reason you have this much hate in your heart and worse, think it's appropriate to express here.

Songs in A Minor is still one

Songs in A Minor is still one of my favorite cds....too bad my respect for the person behind the piano has changed since that time of release.

I first off have read

I first off have read everyone blog before i decided to state my opinion and notice i said mine. I totally agree with those of you who feel a certain way about Alicia keyes after what she has done. In her music she sings about love and respect and uplifting her people and if you going to sing about this then mean what you are speaking of. I get that no one made Swiss leave but as a women cause a man cannot do no more than a women allow him to do she should have been the bigger person and fell back cause he was married at least until they got a divorce. IT is not a good look running around messing up marriages and if their marriage was already done then she should have allowed him to handle his business as a man and got a divvorce first before being seen out with him and she would not be subjected to so much ridacule. I for one will not buy anymore of her albums i also seen the house and how it is now in foreclosure and i dont have kids but that was not a good look.

i totally agree!! If mashonda had her way.....she would get voodu so swizz would stay with her!! I believe she refused to divorce him!!
Anonymous's picture

You ppl are sssoooo

You ppl are sssoooo delusional..Yes b/c we all know the TRUE story, right? I've seen cases where the man did not want to be with the woman any more but she refused to divorce still trying to "hold on." Swiss probably said, ok I'm going to move on with my life regardless. Did you ever think that maybe he tried to do it the right way (get a divorce first) but Mashonda wanted to hold on to something that was no longer there? She then tries to make him look like the bad guy because he moved on with his life (i.e. realtionship, child, marraige). Females are always trying to play the victim when they themselves are not truly innocent. Now none of us know the true story and Swiss not Alicia never talks about Mashonda, but she always talke about them.
Anonymous's picture

You're obviously a mistress.

You're obviously a mistress. We all know Swiss left that marriage foul as most men do. Swiss has a pattern with women and Mashonda should relish in the fact that Alicia will be in her shoes in a couple of years.

Love SONGS IN A MINOR So,

Love SONGS IN A MINOR So, Tired of Riyawna these dayz i am listening 2 real talented ladies like Melanie Fiona & Marsha Ambrosius not some manufactured industry sex driven mess. smh I love Butterflyz but that is already on the album Songz in A Minor i guess it is the full version of the song!!!
Tellin U like it is's picture

smiles at Ri and Eve's

smiles at Ri and Eve's song....they going in on Chris Brown. Eve had a cut like this on her first album called "Love is Blind".....but the girl died in hers if Im remembering it correctly. I bet this was real therapeutic for Ri to do, and she should do more music in her accent like this, sounds pretty good...this song has a lil Lauryn Hill feel to it. Nice. Spend some time right hear RiRi, and give us something to listen to.

I agree. This was a good look

I agree. This was a good look for her. She should definitely sing more songs showcasing her accent. It makes her sound...like an artist (lol). Any way, yeh-- "Love is Blind" was Awesome!

Why do people place higher

Why do people place higher expectations on celebrities. Just like most of you grew up without your mom and dad being a couple, so will mashonda's and swiss beats son, and possibly A.Keys and Swiss's child. Since when did being a celeb equate to being righteous/doing no wrong. The mind is capable of much better thinking and reasoning......THINK! Do unto others as you would have them do unto you = mind your OWN business! Let him who's w/o sin cast the first stone. Are you serious!?! They are people just like you and me, born in sin and shaped in iniquity....thus, in need of saviour/rebirth. Keep playin.
Pslm73_25's picture

It's a shame that black

It's a shame that black people expect so little of one another. Being born in sin and iniquity is all good and well, but isn't the idea to do better, not be complacent or worse? To try and ascend to a higher level of consciousness, rather than wallowing in the sin we were all born in? Being sinners is not a green card to do whatever you like, and is a rather tired excuse for things like... EVERYTHING! At some point, we all have to be cognizant of our choices, and deal with the outcomes of said choices. The choices you make in your personal as well as professional life lend credence to your character, or in some cases, lack thereof.
Anonymous's picture

cognizant of our choices, not

cognizant of our choices, not someone else's, was my point. The minding of your own business. remove the log from your own eye rather than trying to tell someone about the speck in theirs. the log is the audacity to judge someone else's life, rather than mind your own. Clean your house/personally ascend and then you sound better trying to tell/show someone else to. First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck that is in your brother’s eye. You'll see that you don't remove their speck by judging them/throwing stones at him, but by forgiving them and loving on them. Ain't that how you gone ascend? By loving and forgiving yourself...and by having been loved and forgiven? And Being born in sin and iniquity is NOT all good and well. And more accurately, the idea is to be born again, to become a totally new species, not to do better. That's the problem, people settling for a better acting sinner. Where's the redeemed? You're either lost or found. Who wants a cup thats only clean on the outside/appears to be doing better? clean the inside.

I never did get the hype

I never did get the hype about Alicia Keys other than she was attractive and in a world where playing an instrument in R&B music was like a mysticism, her on the piano made her stand out. But even though I think her newer music is mediocre at best and her voice has shot to hell, I have to say Alicia's debut was and still is one of my favorite albums to date. I still say the Grammy's she got for it --- not all, but the excessive amount Clive tossed at her -- aren't as deserved since Jill Scott's phenomenal debut album which had some of the best soul music I'd heard in awhile (similarly, I don't think Jilly has lived up to that album either) was out around the same time & got slighted. But you cannot deny the power of this album, the engines behind it, and the once positive squeaky clean persona she donned to market it were refreshing to see in an attractive female R&B artist after having been subjected to raunchiness. Cheers to its anniversary.

Yes, I do not care for Alicia

Yes, I do not care for Alicia Keys generally & don't think she is all that great as she's made out to be. THIS IS MY OPINION. However if you read anything that I had typed you'd also note that I gave her credit for putting out an album that I appreciated despite my general dislike for her music. I see your eyes are too clouded with pink from having your head up Alicia Keys' bootyhole to see the positive things I said as well, huh? Life's going to be tough for you if you haven't learned how to take constructive criticism.

Love Alicia! So proud of her

Love Alicia! So proud of her that she's managed be successful on her own terms, and blaze her own trail. I remember meeting her, and she is the most humble, down to earth celebrity ever. It was crazy how she just starts talking to you like she's known you forever. People can say what they want about her, based on rumors and drama put on TV for ratings, but despite those wishing her ill or for her downfall, she will continue to thrive and succeed. Just preordered my Collectors edition :-)
