Keys’s response to Apple Music’s exclusion of her nine studio albums from its 100 Best Albums list was widely applauded in the music community.

Alicia Keys is the fourth most-awarded female artist at the Grammy Awards with sixteen victories. In addition, she received nineteen NAACP Image Awards, eleven Soul Train Music Awards, four MTV VMAs, three MTV EMAs, and nine Billboard Music Awards.

The top song on the list, “Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” was Lauryn Hill’s, which Apple Music revealed on Wednesday. 

Some artists acknowledged on the list were Drake, Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, and The Beatles. Regretfully, not a single piece of Keys’ renowned music catalog or distinguished career could be found on the streaming service.

After the list was released, many were shocked to find Apple Music’s 100 Best Albums of ALL TIME does not include any entry from Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Patty LaBelle, Céline Dion, Willa Ford, or Tina Turner.

However, it includes William Eyelash, Taylor Swift, Travis Scott, and SZA.

Soon after Apple Music’s Best 100 hit the internet, Alicia Keys shared a photo of herself on Instagram standing in front of her elegant trophy case, revealing her 16th Grammy for Best Immersive Audio Album, which she received for the reissue of her second album, “The Diary of Alicia Keys.” 

Although it seems highly unlikely that Keys attempted to be shady toward Apple, fans applauded her for the numerous honors she has won, including hosting the MTV Video Music Awards. 

 Alicia Keys has released eight live albums in addition to her nine studio albums. She has produced many of our favorite songs, which have remained favorites on our playlists and in our hearts, even though Apple Music may not consider her albums to be among the best.

The exclusion of R&B from Apple Music’s 100 Albums was a shock. 

One of the most essential albums of the 2000s is still Songs in A Minor. Her debut album laid the foundation for Alicia Keys’ remarkable musical career

Embodied with neo-soul components, Keys radiates throughout the record. Disregarding the album that gave birth to the songs “Fallin'” and “A Woman’s Worth” is a brave choice.
