Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys had two major deals before she signed with Clive Davis' then newly formed J Records via which she finally released her debut, Songs in A Minor. Her unique blend of cornrows, piano chords and R&B soul had the world fallin' for her music, and she swept that year's Grammy Awards, tying Lauryn Hill's then record for most won by a female artist in one night with five of those golden gramophones.
