Alicia Keys Readies New Album, Miguel Mad At The Grammy's

Alicia Keys is back in the studio working on a new album. So far the diva has or plans to work with the likes of Miguel and Rodney Jerkins. Sounds interesting already! Alicia's last album; "The Element Of Freedom" contained the #1 R&B hit; "Unthinkable(I'm Ready)".

We all know upon the release of "Freedom"; Alicia Keys was getting a lot of unwanted publicity for her relationship and eventually marriage to producer Swizz Beats. Unfortunately that bad press played into the album's sales and made "Freedom" her lowest selling album to date.

I think its crazy when artists personal lives start to overshadow their music. Many times those things we are all so obsessed with are detailed in their music. I just think the whole ordeal just left a bad taste in every one's mouth and tarnished Alicia's goody good image.

Miguel is apparently upset as lot of artists who didn't get a Grammy nod this year. Well maybe next year! He did have some excellent singles released this year even though their all initially over three years old. "If at first you don't succeed, dust yourself off and try again!".

Also being that Grammy has trimmed a considerable amount of categories; R&B artists and artists in general will have to work harder for their nominations. People are barking about Beyonce only getting one nomination this year for "Party" but to be honest I'm not surprised though.
