Alicia Keys Earns Top Billboard Adult R&B Chart Achievement
In a career that spans more than 10 years, Alicia Keys has never neglected her R&B roots and crafted a unique sound that makes her stand apart from her contemporaries in the genre. This has driven her success and her winning continues.
Keys made Billboard history this past week, as her song, ‘Fire We Make’ featuring Maxwell, became her 10th No. 1 song to top the Billboard Adult R&B chart. Her last No. 1 song on the chart was ‘Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready)’ from her 2009 album, ‘The Element of Freedom.’
The song reigned there for 10 weeks. In total, Keys has spent a total of 80 weeks at the top of the Adult R&B charts with all of her hits combined — that’s a good year-and-a-half.
Congrats to the songstress!
