    6. she's a better singer than say Ashanti, Mya or Aaliyah but she screams too damn much to be considered a great singer.

    A very good singer when she stays in her small pocket, once she steps outside she sounds horrible. She had a solid run but fell off when her and swizz started making music together.

    Diary of Alicia keys is the goat album of the 00’s

    Yeah, she's not a great singer at all. She's the epitome of average/decent along with the likes of Mary J. I would even put Aaliyah over her singing wise.
    Alicia is super pitchy and can often sing flat through an entire song. Her vocal quality leaves much to be desired. Not a technical singer from any standpoint.

    However as an artist, she's a force to be reckoned with. If I Ain't Got You is possibly one of the most beautifully written songs in music history and Diary being up there as well. She has 2 semi classic albums to me. Her 2nd album probably being her best. She got hits on top of hits man. I salute her because like Mary J, she stayed in her lane, never really went the pop route. Stayed with the real music and didn't sell out.

    Not great vocally but is the entire package. Probably the GOAT of her generation if not Brandy,and Goapelle whos a bias personal favorite.I hate Swizz Beatz with a passion for what he did to her across the board. Musically and in terms of her image:martin:

    Agreed. That album still gets run to this day. It's crazy that If I Aint Got You, Diary and You Don't Know My Name all came from this one cd. Those 3 songs are staples in every black household that appreciates R&B. She kept the genre alive by herself throughout the mid 00's.

    Unbreakable, No One, Like You'll Never See Me Again, Unthinkable. She even had a joint with Maxwell in 2013 that was tearing up the urban radio stations.

    Never heard of Goapelle. And Alicia and Brandy are two different generations. Brandys prime was the 90s with her 1st two albums.

    Alicia's generation includes Beyonce, Amerie, maybe Keyshia Cole , etc
