It's hard to believe Alicia Keys was only 20 when she burst onto the scene with her unforgettable debut album Songs In A Minor. Ten years and 14 Grammys later, J Records will celebrate the original release of Songs with a special 10th anniversary deluxe edition.
Out on June 28, the two-CD deluxe edition will include bonus material such as remixes, outtakes and new liner notes written by Keys. The collector's edition will also feature a documentary on the making of the album.
"It's incredibly surreal for me to be celebrating the 10th anniversary of songs in A minor," says Keys. "Looking back on the journey, I'm truly moved by my fans and friends who've been with me and have supported me throughout my career. This album is possibly the most precious to me, as your first album only happens once, and so songs in A minor will always hold a special place in my life that's filled with amazing memories. I'm so proud that the songs are still being enjoyed around the world, and I'm crazy excited to share, through the 10th Anniversary Edition, songs never heard before, and even more of my debut album with you."
Keys will perform on the BET Awards on June 26 and at New York's Beacon Theater on June 30.
