Alicia Keys Visits ‘The Jonathan Ross Show,’ Performs ‘Brand New Me’

Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys was hard to miss this week. In addition to her appearances at Sundance, President Obama’s Inaugural Ball, and the NRJ Music Awards, the hard-working Keys was in the hot seat on “The Jonathan Ross Show” during her visit to the U.K.

The birthday girl chatted about performing “Obama’s on Fire,” her husband Swizz Beatz, and two-year-old son Egypt, who can name the entire starting lineup for the Knicks.

She also belted out a bit of “Empire State of Mind” on the couch and then sat down at the piano for an intimate performance of “Brand New Me.”

Alicia’s week of celebration continues as her album Girl on Fire has officially gone platinum. “The Bday love continues!!! Woooow!! Over a million worldwide sales of Girl on fire album and almost 2 million singles!! So Much love to all my fam!! And @nickiminaj & WERE JUST GETTING STARTED!!! #blessing and love!!” she tweeted.

    She bought those herself. I’m not convinced that she sold a million of that dreadful song.

    Girl on Fire without the feature is higher on the Itunes chart than the one with Nicki Minaj.

    @Justine, yeah now it is since alicia keys has performed it without nicki so it was obvious that it will sell more but when it came out until about 3 weeks ago the one with nicki sold more

    @QUEEN MINAJ, Oh. So if Alicia would have recorded the song without ever having a feature, it would have still sold well. Thanks.

    @Justine, But the version with Nicki Minaj is the one that everyone seems to favor also it is the one that charted number 11 on billboard hot 100 and number 2 on hiphop/r&b plus several other charts and Alicia is well a where of that :)

    Justine Reply:

    @Liam, The Nicki Minaj version is the one on the album so therefore, it is the most heard, I’m sure.

    @Liam, Incorrect. All versions of that song helped it reach that position. They all contributed to the one Billboard position.
