Wow, this record is incredible.
Alicia Keys makes it sound so easy to create those records that leave a lasting impression long after you listen to them, “101” is yet another song that expresses that.
The song closes out her Girl On Fire album, and it's the perfect ending to a well thought out, well written and produced project.
The song was written by Emeli Sande, who was on the live preview of Girl On Fire on Google+ Hangouts.
No beat, just Alicia Keys and her piano.
