27 Jan Alicia Keys Dying To Duet with Prince
According to music-news.com, Alicia Keys is “desperate to duet with Prince”. Despite winning nine Grammy awards in her career and collaborating with many top artists, Keys says “it would be a dream come true to record a track with her idol, the only celebrity who has left her completely star-struck”.
During an interview on BBC Radio 1Xtra, Keys said: “I met Prince before. I tried to act cool but I definitely had a little star-struck moment. He’s great.”
Keys has had her share of opportunities to hang out with the purple one. In 2001, she performed as part of his Celebration at Paisley Park. Keys also gave a speech for Prince when he was inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
Prince also presented Keys with the best female R&B vocal performance at last year’s Grammy Awards.
Wonder if there are any Keys / Prince collaborations in the purple vault… What do you guys think? Would you like to see these two record together? -Dr.FB
