Music Shopping: "As I Am" by Alicia Keys

My copy of "As I Am" while waiting in line to be rung up at Hot Tracks in Kyobo Bookstore, Gwanghwamun, Seoul.

I usually don't blog my music purchases here. I blog that on MySpace. However, I'm so excited about this one!

As I wrote last week, Alicia Keys' new CD was set to drop on the 12th. The 12th back home is the 13th here. I also caught her Good Morning America performance on TV this morning, so I was inspired by the music PR machine to run to Hot Tracks to buy the CD before my Wednesday evening dance class. While I was there I also picked up my fountain pen that I'd sent in to be repaired.

Right now I'm ripping "As I Am" to my PDA and I'm listening to it. So far, so damn good.

I just had to share 'cause I'm a geek. Okay, it's past my bedtime. G'night.

  1. I didn't know AK had a new album dropping. I'll definitely pick it up, right after I grab Jill Scott's new one. There's probably a handfull of artists I'll buy the cd instead of download. Those two ladies are definitley on that list.

    Well, I'm glad that I've helped out Alicia's record company with one more sale.

    I just buy because it's easier for me to rip tracks from the CDs I buy and, I admit, I buy too many. The online formats lock down what kind of portable player you can use and that sucks.

  3. Alicia Keys, Jill Scott, India Arie - 3 talented ladies who always bring a great album

  4. I completely agree!

    I have much love for all three of them.

    I think Corrine Bailey Rae will join them. However, as she just has her debut album and a live one, we'll have to wait for number two to verify that ;)

  5. Corrine! She has that awesome throwback appeal. I love her. If you haven't already also check out amel larrieux, goapele, lina, les nubians(oh that so rock), and van hunt just to give the fellas some love too. :-)

  6. I've heard of all of them but I haven't gotten into them all. I think it's just an issue of priorities. However, Goapele is from the Bay Area, so, of course I know her.
