Alicia Keys Inspired by Aaliyah

Alicia Keys reveals her 2003 hit single 'No One' was inspired by the death of R&B singer Aaliyah...

In a segment on The Voice Alicia explains,
"I was on a plane, and I think being on a plane and knowing she passed away after a plane crash, there was just this sentiment of being present in the moment and really nothing else mattering but those that you love."
"I think that feeling was really present in my life at that time and really right in my face."
"I wrote it really quickly, but in order to produce it the way that you hear it, it took forever. Nothing would come out right. Every version that I did, every arrangement that I did was just wrong. It was such a labor of love."
