Video: Alicia Keys Duets with Prince at L.A. Concert

Prince treated fans to a surprise last night during his performance at Los Angeles’ Forum, where he’s currently on a 21-night concert run. The Purple One brought out Alicia Keys to duet on his hit “How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore?” which she later covered for her 2001 debut songs in A minor. During the rendition, the pop icon manned the piano while Ms. Keys stood by his side, complimenting his vocals with her smooth trills.

    @megan, b*tch you still stuck on name calling while Alicia is living her life and fulfilling her dreams working on a brand new album, producing a film being honored along with some of the greats and you gutter rats keep recycling. Sh*t that you have no clue about. Alicia was phenominal. Love how she continues to kill it!! Boom B*tch.

    @megan, Get over it already. She didn’t do anything to you. Only judgemental people like your are going to remember things they themselves don’t even know are true. Worry about your own life and all YOUR mistakes and descrepancies. Yes, I’m sure you have some.

    All that doesn’t matter? Maybe that is what your limited mind will remember but the people that COUNTS her fans and her industry peers that simply adore her will lawd her for her talents and her wonderful philonthropic efforts you keep living in judgement and hate and see how that works for you. I hope that you and your children if you have any or ever have any will be judged by others for any sins that you commit the same way you are tying to judge and define her by 1 incident if you think that is what life is about your life will be pathetic.

    @megan, Megan, it’s amazing how you were the first to post here. I laugh. Seems you’re awfully interested in everything she does not to like her. Just another idiot sticking their nose in someone elses business that they know absolutely nothing about. And you girl, you’re not so great yourself to go around downing someone else when you don’t have a clue. Oh yes, you read about it so it must be true. I laugh again. Just a weak minded person that can’t wait to criticize another. Not to mention it’s her life and none of your business. She doesn’t care about your stupid accusations and neither do we. This performance was amazing, only wish I could have been there. Alicia and Prince. WOW!

    @megan, Jealous? Alicia Keys, the real SUPERWOMAN. Love this lady. She just keeps getting better and better. Anything she does, anything she touches-the best. Can’t wait for the new album in June and hopefully another one later this year. Eat your heart out Megan, she’s not worried about what you think. No.1

    @megan, Love this show, well at least what I saw of it. Alicia looks and sounds fantastic and Prince, as always, is amazing. Can’t wait for Alicia’s new albums and movie she’s directing, not to mention her two shows in New York and London. She’s one busy lady. Much respect and love for this lady. Worry about your own life Megan, no one cares what you think you know. Go Alicia!

    Awww that was cute. That’s my favorite Prince song. Didn’t know Alicia covered it before. I’ll have to check it out. I’m guessing Prince is someone she looks up to then? I kinda heard the influence on “Never See Me Again”. Brilliant Alicia Keys record.

    awww i freakin miss Alicia! She covered this song on her first album and it was always one of my favorites.. especially when she sang it live. She’s a huge prince fan so i can only imagine what that felt like to sing up there with him :) really proud of her career.

  6. It's An Honor

    I wish I had been there. People know that sharing a stage with Prince in a debut is an honor. Anyone would be jealous because Alicia is a well respected artist.

    Love Prince and Alicia Keys there are two of my all time favorites.

    Alicia Keys smashed the vocals on this. Who said she can’t sing? Stupid ass Mashonda fans searching Alicia Keys just to post “homewrecker” on all her videos. Damn why do you have to hate so much, she isn’t worried about you.

  8. The Truth

    Seriously this a dream come true. Prince has always respected Alicia as a musician. I was just reading an article from 2001 when he invite her to perform at Paisley Park. Alicia has always love Prince music and was at the Rock and Roll Hall of Frame to give him his award and to honor him in 2004. In 2010, she sang adore in Prince honor at the BET awards.

    This is a true artist who respects another artist with true GOD given talent.

    Prince is SO cool. Loved the way the floor just started going down. Love Alicia also! This would have been such an outstanding show. Alicia and Prince are AMAZING. So good to see Ms Keys doing her thing again. She looks great!

    Her voice sounds more clearer and smoother and less deeper and huskier, maybe childbirth has made her voice sound different, but in a good way. I cannot wait until her new album. This is how you know Alicia Keys is a BAD BITCH. The Element o Freedom sold around 3.5 million WW and it was called a commercial failure. But Rihanna has #1 singles from one album and it has only sold 4 million WW and Katy Perry has 4 #1 singles from one album and it’s only sold 3.5 million WW and those are both commercial successes. LOL

    @antonio, TEOF is definitely not a failure, not by a long shot. Love that album and the fact it wasn’t nominated for certain awards is ridiculous.

    I love Prince and I simply adore Alicia she is such a talented artist. Alicia will be around for the long haul, artist like her are the ones that become truly respected Icon, in the last month I have read at least 6 articles from young artist who’s dream is to work with Alicia not just R and B artists but all genres that says a lot about an artist when you inspire other artist, she is what music is about and Prince is just fantastic he will be remembered as one of the greats.

    Get out of here with that homewrecker mess. I still love Alicia no matter what because she is an amazing artist and person. Mashonda is just bitter and jealous because Alicia is still successful. All she wants is attention, but her 15 minutes of fame expired the day she flapped her gums about Alicia. Don’t get fame or whatever she thinks she has off of someone else.
    And none of AK’s albums are nowhere near failures. Her career is 10+ years strong (counting her true debut in ’97 with MIB) and still going. We forget about these wack pop artists in a year after release because it all sounds the same. That’s why they do an album every year. AK is so good she can wait two or five years like As I Am to do a studio album and still own the competition. She’s great and I bet she’ll own this year of R&B too with SIAM 10th anniversary and her next studio album. She is dominating the industry. Just wait :) <3 Alicia Keys!
    And this video is beyond cute. AK and Prince are great! Listen to those vocals, wow!

    I just watched the video on youtube which is a longer version that the one posted above.

    Alicia’s voice is so strong, smooth and clear. When she was pregnant her voice was like that also. Prince is over 50 years old and he can still hit the high notes. These two are my musicial idols. Everyone that attended was so lucky to witness Prince and his greatness.

    Love for both……By the way, The Element of Freedom was an album that showed Alicia’s growth as a vocalist, writer, composer and musician.
    She didn’t an excellent job as always. I love all of her albums.

    Great video!!!…Alica & Prince need to write a song together & do a duet…people Alicia should do a duet with: 1)Prince, 2)Sade, 3)Maxwell, 4)Mary J. Blige 5)Bruno Mars…who else should be on this list???

    And I love the fact that Alicia is branching out in other areas of music/entertainment: producing & writing for other artist, directing films, etc. & her humanitarian work is 2nd to none… Alicia knows that you don’t have to be in front of the camera ALL THE DAMN TIME & make a video for every damn song you make to be successful & for people to remember your name (quality over quantity)…plus, the most success & money is made working behind the scenes…MUCH continued success to Alicia!!! :-)
