Beyonce made quite the entrance for the half-time show but the Destiny’s Child reunion stole the show…

But let’s face it, Madonna’s iconic half-time show last year was better. Beyonce just doesn’t have as many strong “classics” under her belt to top Madonna’s

Alicia Keys Channels Crystal Waters In “Brand New Me (Part II)”…

by: Taj | January 30th, 2013

Alicia Keys is taking us back to the 90′s and channels her inner-Crystal Waters for her “Brand New Me (Part II)” remix! The “Girl On Fire” singer transformed the inspiring ballad into a funky mid-tempo club joint which heavily barrows from Crystal Waters’ classic dance hit “Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless)“.

New Music: Alicia Keys – Girl On Fire + (Inferno Remix Ft. Nicki Minaj)

by: Taj | September 3rd, 2012

Soulful-pop songstress Alicia Keys has returned with a new single titled “Girl On Fire“! The new mid-tempo Ryan Tedder-esque ballad is very infectious – I’m already hooked after just one listen! An alternate “remixed” version of the song called the “Inferno Remix” has already surfaced but don’t get your hopes up… Not a remix for the clubs but more of a radi friendly version of the original which incorporates a little more of the beat and features a surprisingly not annoying cameo from Nicki Minaj. Check out both versions below and let me know if you’ve caught some of Alicia’s fire listening to her new song…

Remix Treatment: Alicia Keys – Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart (Nu Addiction Unreleased Remix)

by: Taj | May 12th, 2010

After posting the very rare Chew Fu remix of Alicia Keys’ single “Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart” earlier this week… Another rare remix of the song has come my way. This one was produced by Nu Addiction but was turned by Alicia because she didn’t like the sped up vocals. (I’m gonna have to agree with her on this one) Though I like the instrumentation in this Nu Addiction production… The vocals should have never been sped up this fast. I prefer Chew Fu’s take which slowed down slightly to work at this BPM. Take a listen and tell me what you think…
