Alicia Keys sold 742,000 copies of her #1 album “As I Am” this week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The #2 album only sold 223K. AK is doing it big on pure talent, no gimmicks and sexed-up marketing.

More signs that it’s time for the old man to retire, American Gangster plummeted to #8 with a 70% decrease to 131K. Don’t feel bad for Camel, his checks are never going to stop coming in.

    Congrats Alicia. That’s what happens when an artist puts out REAL and timeless music.

    Good things happening for this beautiful lady. Love you Alicia

    stop hatin on ” Jayonce ” . Why are they even on your mind? This is about Alicia – she showed out, so lift her up instead of trying to tear some one else down.

  • Jus Another Opinion

    I agree with the blogger who said good things happen to folks who put out real music. Alicia and Kanye are leading the way. Now we just need to get Musiq Soulchild, Life, Maxwell and India Arie on board and we are on our way!!!

  • bria

    This CD is really good. If gives you that late 70′ early 80’s feel to it. It is just great.

    Did you miss the memo? Over exposed and greediness and their stans (stalker/fans is why I can’t stand them. Who said I was hating, I was being real, just like the folks that went and bought that Alicia album. The glitter dresses and fakeness and Tina and Matthew Knowles are what is bad for the music industry. The industry should be about the music so if your GIRL ain’t bringing it don’t say I’m hating!! Now its time for Mary J to come out and I will be supporting her! So hate on that!!

    Since I am bored at work I’ll respond.

    EVERYBODY in showbiz is greedy to some extent that’s why they are in the biz.I do have the American Gangster c.d and I can tell you at least my opinion of it, it’ in his top 4, hell maybe even top 3 of his collection. But only people that dislike him and MJ (GREATNESS) will remember their failure’s.


    and as for DEF jam yea he’s the pres. but the pres. has vice presidents and cabinet members, When things don’t go right you can’t just blame him.

    @ Bahama Mama

    Well since I have a paid holiday off from my job I will respond to your comment. Down play the Jay-Z stuff all you want, others at Def Jam agree with me! Until then I am sticking to what I said!

  • Bahama Mama


    That’s nice!

  • Mahogany

    I’ll take the guy in the background with his mouth ajar…….that’s a good look.


    Oh and Alicia is the truth, we all know that.
