Alicia Keys Q&A
Alan Light, W, June 2011
WHAT'S THE first thing you think of when you think back ten years to the days of Songs in A Minor?
The first thing I think of is a young girl always walking down the street with headphones on, always listening to music, in baggy jeans and Timberlands — New York through to the core. I remember how much of a dream it all was, trying to figure out, how do I make this all come together? How to do it, step by step, to make the concept real. It felt like it was going to take forever for people to hear the music, my thoughts, but I always believed that it would happen.
