Also to look out for; “My Love”, an infectious ditty that features the legendary Eric Benét.
Upon high school graduation, she attended Boston's Berklee College of Music.
It was her first single to reach number one on the R&B chart in the United States since 2007's "Like You'll Never See Me Again"."Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready)" spent twelve consecutive weeks atop the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop, the longest-running number-one single of 2010, when the single was in its 12th week on top of the chart, Keys has completed a total of 54 weeks at #1 on the chart. Concepcion said "the singer/pianist goes from entertaining puppy love to confessing deeper emotions. She finally builds up the courage to share a serious desire with her lover ... For an artist who has built her career on songs about love, lust and heartache, Keys has never sounded quite as vulnerable and exposed as she does here." Allison Stewart from The Washington Post neither praised nor criticised the song but simple said that Drake's appearance was pointless.
"[It fulfills] some sort of unspoken requirement that every female R&B album contain an appearance by at least one cool-but-unthreatening hip-hop star." Molly Lambert from Pitchfork considered the song as the 64th best song of the year saying: "Alicia Keys always puts out one perfect song per album. Skittering beats, trembling synths, deep piano chord progressions, and floating drums.
I respect her artistry, and she was a gift to this production.
Her talent is a gift to the world.” “As for Bruce Bruce and Anthony Anderson, having them participate in this video was a blessing, and it was a lot of fun,” he continues.
The album is as musical as it’s accessible and it’s equally a great validation for the producers in question.
