The 2019 Grammys: Standout Live Performances (Video)

Did anybody catch The Grammys? Not on ’em like that so much, but landed on the channel and peeped a while. Some out-there performances on there; memorable to say the least. Snagged and embedded some of the noteworthy ones – starting with a very special opening above, continuing the showcases after the jump.

(Now when I say ‘snagged’… Well, you’ll see. Just please forgive the bootleggedness of some of the clips.)

R&B: Alicia Keys – “Blended Family” (What You Do For Love) feat. A$AP Rocky [Video]

Off the album “Here” by Alicia Keys (still makeup-less in this vid; still lovely as ever), this is “Blended Family” (featuring A$AP Rocky). An incredibly real feel of love-in-spite-of coming from Alicia who’s coming from a genuine place with it. You probably know the SwizzAliciaMashonda situation…went from the worst mashed up situation to a more-than-cordial one. The vid is well worth the watch. And the album, likely worth the cop.

Activism: 23 Ways You Could Be Killed If You Are Black in America (Video)

Remember when Chris Rock did the comedic PSA “How To Not Get Your Ass Kicked By The Police” on his show years ago? No? We’re not surprised. With the passage of time AND all the police involved tragedy going on today, who can remember? And with all the unwarranted KILLING happening to us, it is really hard to laugh anymore. Crazy thing is… there seems to be NOTHING we can do to GUARANTEE living through a police encounter nowadays. Truth is, the time for folly is at an end. Hence the #WeAreHere Movement and the video above.

Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Jennifer Hudson, Pink, Bono, and others explain why it’s time to take action to heal the long history of systemic racism in America. #23Ways

In collaboration with Alicia Key and the We Are Here Movement, with original reporting from Mic’s Jamilah King. Go to to find out more.

Alicia Keys – “In Common”

Goodnight usually means goodbye.

What?? Who dips out on Alicia Keys? That’s like an anti-fantasy (and for those who say ‘no such thing’ I say…MY POINT EXACTLY)! Nice track. Enjoy listening to Ms. Keys cooing this “In Common” for us.

R&B/Soul: Alicia Keys – “We Are Here” (Video)

We gone pray for the innocent… ’cause right now it don’t make sense.
Alicia Keys

“We are here for all of us.” Alicia Keys’ “We Are Here” message cannot get any clearer or more compelling. So, a nice visual would likely do well to simply bring ‘background’ and let the viewer soak in content and context. Keeping with that, Alicia went back early ‘Crucial Keys’ style on us – just a cutie in cornrows on the piano singing soul to the six billion on this planet. This is world music from New York y’all. Enjoy it. Reflect and relate to the music and message.

Alicia Keys – ‘Brand New Me Part 2’

dj-ak-47Alicia Keys is taking me back to that early 90s Philly/Jersey/NY Hip Hop & House music era with this Crystal Waters inspired track “B.N.M. Part 2” (Brand New Me Part 2) joint! Pure Fiyah! Although “DJ AK-47 put this joint out in celebration of her 32nd birthday yesterday coupled with the many well wishes from her fans, I feel like she was really giving us a gem of a gift with this joint right here!

Alicia Keys Loves Her Some ‘Gummi Bears’ (Video)

Who doesn’t love Alicia Keys? As she performs her soulful rendition of the theme to the 1990s cartoon ‘Adventures of the Gummi Bears’ on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, you kind of want to laugh… but you’re kind of saying to yourself… ‘Alicia knows she can sing anything!’

On top of that, she is just that damn fine. You can laugh though. Alicia won’t be offended… mainly because she won’t find out that you did. At least, not from us. Hahaaaaa.

New banger from Alicia Keys entitled “New day.” You know her man Swizz Beatz had to put it to the track. It’s his baby’s summer joint! Signature shoulder-jump-bump-beat-heat with lovely Alicia lyrics laid over it? Yeah, I like it.

Alicia Keys Gets That Azz Waxed (Video)

I can only imagine what the male employees did to Alicia Keys’ wax replica of herself at the Madame Tussauds museum in New York City before the official unveiling. They may even need to hire additional security in case someone tried to take her replica home & literally ‘wax dat ass’. Hahaaa! The super beautiful Alicia Keys, who just so happens to be married to & has a new child with Swizz Beatz, unveiled her new wax likeness & also celebrated the 10 year anniversary of her debut album Songs In A Minor. Yeah..just like Virginia Slims…’ve come a long way baby. More photos after the jump….
