Regular price $ 42.00

Songs in A Minor is the debut studio album by American singer and songwriter Alicia Keys. It was released on June 5, 2001, by J Records.

Keys began writing songs for the album in 1995 at age 14 and recording the album in 1998 for Columbia Records, but after they rejected it, she signed a recording contract with Clive Davis's Arista Records and eventually J Records. An accomplished, classically trained pianist, Keys wrote, arranged and produced the majority of the album herself. It is a neo soul album with elements of R&B, soul, jazz, hip hop, blues, classical, and gospel music. Lyrically, the songs explore the complexities and various stages of personal relationships. Despite its title, "Jane Doe" is the only song on the album actually in the key of A minor.

Songs in A Minor debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 236,000 copies in its first week. To promote the album, Keys embarked on her first headlining concert tour, entitled the Songs in A Minor Tour. By 2008, the album had sold over 6.2 million copies in the United States and 12 million copies worldwide. It was also an immediate critical success and has since been regarded as a classic. The album earned Keys several accolades, including five Grammy Awards at the 44th Grammy Awards.
