Alicia Keys Shares Unreleased Song ‘When You Were Gone’

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Alicia Keys’ third album, As I Am, the singer has shared an unreleased track titled “When You Were Gone.”

“‘When You Were Gone’ is one of the VERY first songs recorded for As I Am, the one where I started to create the sound that the album has,” Keys explained. “We were experimenting with a lot of keyboards and sounds and styles of recording, and we were all about breaking boundaries and writing things in new ways.”

Released on Nov. 9, 2007, As I Am featured some of Keys’ hits including “No One,” “Like You’ll Never See Me Again,” “Teenage Love Affair” and “Superwoman.” The album scored Keys a few Grammys including Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song for “No One.”

702’s Meelah Returns with New Song ‘Desert Love’

Meelah, of R&B group 702, took a short hiatus from her solo career but she’s back. The R&B vet returns with “Desert Love,” a smooth jam produced and co-written by J-Trx.

Backed by an enticing beat, Meelah finds herself all in her feelings thinking about the good times with an old lover. She wishes she could take him back but she can’t seem to get passed the errors of his ways.

Meelah was on the verge of releasing his debut album a few years ago but the stars were not aligned for her to successfully drop it. Now, with the support of her new label home, SoulStar Music Group, Meelah is ready to share her new music with the world.

“Timing is everything,” Meelah said in a statement. “Releasing a project has been a long awaited moment for me so when SoulStar Music Group approached me I was truly humbled and excited to record my debut solo album.”

“Desert Love” is just an appetizer before Meelah releases the official first single from her untitled debut album, which is set to be released on SoulStar Music Group / eOne Music later this year.
