Anyone that knows me personally knows that I love Alicia Keys....I am a huge fan!!! Her 2003 album, The Diary Of Alicia Keys is by far my favorite album of hers. "If I Aint Got You" is one of her biggest singles, and she attributes the inspiration for the song to the late Aaliyah.
“The song idea came together right after Aaliyah passed away. It was such a sad time and no one wanted to believe it. It just made everything crystal clear to me—what matters, and what doesn’t.” She goes on to say “I remember writing the beginnings of it on a flight somewhere and then finished it in the hotel once I got where we were going,” she added. “It came quickly and I was so moved to write it and it doesn’t matter how many times I sing it, I love it with the same intensity as when I first wrote and recorded it.”
