Alicia Keys Reveals Recording Sessions W/ Jay-Z For VH1 "Storytellers"

Alicia Keys recorded her VH1 "Storytellers" episode last night at the Metropolis Studios in NYC.  Check out what the "Girl On Fire" singer said about Jay-Z demanding a re-record of their track inside...

In a black sleeveless top and shiny silver pants with her sky high black Louboutins (pictured above in between takes), Ms. Keys took that stage last night to record her upcoming episode of VH1 "Storytellers."

Alicia revealed just how the new New York Anthem, "Empire State of Mind," came about. 

Her longtime New York homie Jay-Z called her up and said he had a song for her to hear.  And after she recorded her verses the first time while congested, the perfectionist Mr. Carter told her it was good, but could be better.  Jay demanded a re-record, and Alicia semi-jokingly revealed she "felt some kind of way."  And after she went back and hit the sing hard, a new classic was born.

The mom of almost-2-year-old Egypt also dished on her baby boy's fave song of mommy's, working with Kanye West & John Legend before they blew up, and more.

Alicia's "Storytellers" airs Monday, November 12th at 11pm ET/PT on VH1.

To me ~ the new song out

To me ~ the new song out sounds like her husband's recycled beats. As far as I'm concerned ~ the only thing hot / refreshing is that new hair cut. On to the next . . .

Alicia just gets better and

Alicia just gets better and better. I too hadn't listened to her music for a long time and then I heard "Unthinkable" . Well needless to say I didn't know what I'd been missing. I had to stock up on all her albums and get caught up. I love all the albums and I really don't think she is capable of putting out a bad one. I love her new music, what I've heard of it and I can't wait for the new album. Much love for her and her music.

All she's gonna do is scream

All she's gonna do is scream until her lung burst and when she starts telling her stories, trust that it's gonna be nothing more than her being overly poetic using unnecessary analogies. No Thanks!
