to nurture a roster of great and diverse artists like Aretha Franklin, Bruce Springsteen and Whitney Houston. It was a great place for someone like Alicia to develop their unique talent. In the wake of continued changes in the record indus- try though, Arista Records and Davis parted ways (temporarily, as it turned out), but Alicia followed Davis to his newly-formed J Records label. She recorded the songs "Rock wit U" and "Rear View Mirror", featured on the soundtracks to the films Shaft (2000) and Dr. Doolittle 2 (2001) respectively. Keys then released her debut album Songs In A Minor which struck an imme- diate chord with people and went on to sell over ten million units worldwide, establishing her as an international star. She became the best-selling new artist of 2001 as well as the best-selling R&B artist. The outstanding first single,


“Fallin’” got airplay on a variety of differ- ent radio formats and spent six weeks at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100. Another song from the album, “A Woman’s Worth,” was also a top ten sin- gle in the US.


Her memorable videos and distinc-


tive sound garnered a great deal of atten- tion from the media. This combined with the popular and critical acclaim immedi- ately placed her in the major superstar category. With so much to live up to,
