Time 100: Alicia Keys Pays Tribute To Angelique Kidjo

Keys

 For being listed in the Time list of the 100 most Influential People in the World, American multi-instrumentalist, Alicia Keys has paid an inspiring tribute to Grammy inner, Angelique Kidjo. 

In her tribute, Keys notes that to be able to witness Angelique Kidjo in her element is a gift. Recalling their collaboration on a song for Kidjo’s latest album, ‘Mother Nature’, Keys says that it felt both magical and natural, ‘like we were sisters in the studio’. 

“She taught me how to dance to African music with her, and would walk me through the steps and rhythms like an absolute firecracker. Her ability to blend cultures, creating a soulful sound that is out of this world, makes working with her and listening to her so special. It doesn’t matter where you are—you hear her, and you become alive. She electrifies people. 

Through Mother Nature—which features collaborations with the next generation of African musicians— she continues to uphold her mission of bringing forth incredible people and giving them a chance. It’s meaningful for someone like Angelique to say to a younger artist, “I love you, and you’re amazing. Here’s an opportunity for everyone to hear you.” The grace she exudes toward her fellow creators, and to humankind, is a reflection of her vibrancy, kindness and generosity. Angelique is as real as they come,” she says. 

This is not the first time Alicia Keys will be collaborating with Angelique Kidjo. In 2018, Kidjo featured Keys on a new version of the song ‘The Great Curve’. The song, a remix of a song by American band Talking Heads, was first covered by Kidjo in 2017’s version of the band’s acclaimed 1980 album Remain in Light.
