Music Video: Alicia Keys, "No One"

Music Video: Alicia Keys, "No One"

While Alicia Keys' music can sometimes be hit-or-miss with me, I think this song "No One" is fantastic. Her voice is big and powerful, passionate and strong. The video? Not so sure about it. She looks beautiful — I especially love her hair all big and full, like it was at the VMAs — and she certainly rocks that gold dress. But it seems like her top priority is gyrating and making passionate faces at the camera, with the piano-playing coming in as an afterthought. Frankly, I think it's kind of weird.

I love this song, the video not so much...I think that this song is written in a range just above Alicia's natural singing voice so that every note seems strained making this song sound so very passionate.

I love this song, she sounds like she's really singing as opposed to all of the digitized crap we get. And I agree, if I gyrate to the song, why shouldn't she??

exactly, hayworthgilda. i "gyrate" to that song and yes! it's hard not to, it has such a good, positive beat unlike other songs out right now.

I agree, pink flats! she's soo talented and beautiful and I always end up 'gyrating' at the same parts of the song -- car, work, wherever. It's hard not to!

frankly alicia keys can do no wrong in my book. this is one of my favorite songs playing in the radio right now. i also think that this song has that beat where it calls for her to "gyrate" like what she's doing in the video. i know i would be doing song. also i love that she hasn't comform herself to dressing and making music like beyonce or rhianna. she's still sticking to what she's been doing since she came to the music scene. i mean look at rhianna, she's only 19 and yet has to "sex-a-fy" her image so she can sell more records. i love that alicia keys has not use her body or publicity stunts to sell records. okay my ode to alicia keys is over. lol.
