When that song came out and everyone hyped the hell out of it; I was so confused and didn't understand why. The best thing about that song was the beat.

I agree with you Natalay. Alicia Keys is a much better artist and makes better music, but I get bored with her music. I don't really even listen to Beyonce to be honest; her music is simple and if you've heard one song; you've heard them all.
That's exactly how I feel about Alicia keys, plus she can't even dance, and her stuff gets boring.

Didn't say a signature song had to be "deep" or meaningful. The Ohio Players' signature cut is Love Rollercoaster. I just needs to be a smash hit.

Songs in A Minor was a great cd; I don't know anyone who doesn't like Falling. Beyonce's songs are the type of songs that are fun to sing loud, fun to dance to, you might do them at Karaoke but I can't imagine anyone singing Video Phone ten years from now.

All great artists have at least one it song. I don't think Beyonce has made her it song yet.

OMG without a doubt. Alicia's NY song, (minus the rap part) will most definetely stand the test of time.
Alicia maybe doesn't shake her booty like Beyonce, but for talent, she out shines Beyonce like a star !!!

She was very approachable and very down to earth. folks felt comfortable in her presence.

Beyonce tries too hard to be "on" and "perfect" all of the time. That's not real and that's why alot of folks can't relate to her. So, in addition to her wonderful music and dance moves, Aaliyah had a sweet, yet approachable personality that folks enjoyed being around. And, that would have made Aaliyah stand out and reach a far higher level of popularity over Beyonce.

Aaliyah was amazing! i was a big fan of hers. i remember i use to be so excited about the release of her videos. LOL i couldn't wait to see what cool dance moves she would do. her music was really good too.

i'm sorry, but that song is not epic at all. LOL

Beyonce, take notes from Brandy and Monica! now these girls have beautiful music, and have stood strong for 10 years. when you hear old Brandy and Monica music, it takes you back to your school days. now that is epic music!!!!!!!!!!

see that's the problem with music today. you have to dance and to all this other stuff so people can like you. it's crazy man! back in the day, you didn't have to do all that. you just sang and you were hot!!!!!!! i got a grammy because you were damn good!!!

i feel so sorry for these people that really have talent because they are really getting overlooked. wow, what a shame!

I don't think a signature song has to be deep or meaningful but I think it has to be something that stands the test of time. I'm in my 20's now; I can't see myself dancing to that 20 years from now but let Doing Tha Butt, Atomic Dogg or Brick House come on and not only will I dance but I know those songs word for word. And those were well before my time Hell I'll even dance to The Macarena because it makes me think of middle school dances and boys I had crushes on but Crazy In Love just doesn't strike me as a song that will still be going strong once the Beyonce star dims.

Well Alicia Keys is a singer (or musician because she can play instruments) she's not an entertainer. I'd never go see her in a concert if she was the opening act. You can only watch someone play the piano for so long.
