I am not a HUGE HUGE fan of Alicia Keys but she has churned out some good ones which I liked listening to the past few years.
This time she and I are on the same page because this is my absolute favorite!!!!!!!!! It's on REPEAT on my Ipod now now now now now now now now now now now now now now! hahahahaha I love the electricity of the drum beats near the ending...fantastic!!!
Plus she can sing very well LIVE too. This is always my biggest template for a great singer! If anyone can sound as close to the singer in the music during recording then that's spectacular in my humble opinion...
Plus she is beautiful and that doesn't hurt one bit hahaha
PS I dont like the Jay-Z version with her that much although it's not bad :)
First of all I am so thankful to everyone who has made my 2009 a benchmark year!
This is a year of upheavals and letdowns. But of course not a year without lessons learned. Experience has taught me that what doesn't leave permanent scars will make me stronger and the things that leave eternal scars serve to remind me of my humanity... and vulnerability.
I have long been free of the chains of many aspects of my personal life but I am going to acknowledge this fact! I have never felt more fulfilled at any stage during the past year than this point. Yes meeting many people has indeed opened up new challenges and of course given my tenacity and proper guidance, I know I will overcome these obstacles. Yes I meet them in my bed and off of it, I acknowledge that too!!!! (I don't have to hide anything) HAHAHAHHAA....I think genetically MAN was meant to conquer the bars that kept him captive and this is true in my case. Sometimes circumstance and coincidence as well as a little bit of intuition conspire to help me overcome many of my personal challenges. I am glad LIFE works this way!
I am so happy I got to see the world more and travel again! And work of course! It is an exhilarating experience for a woman like me who is fiercely independent, unafraid of breaking stereotypes and humanely entrepreneurial :) I am always one who thinks outside the box and loves to know the social context of my experiences and where they fit in the grand design of my life! I am very passionate about this because only by thinking out of my box will I achieve a true understanding of my self and the workings of my mind.
I am looking forward to 2010 with great vigor, eagerness and anticipation! I have so many plans in life it makes me giddy and happy! The next year will be even better as long as I keep in mind that I have perseverance, grit and bravado as totem poles. Thank you to all my liaisons! You are my source of motivation and temporary nirvanas and your unconscious tug at me to better myself is very well-cherished on my part.
