Alicia Keys first single from her new album ‘As I Am’ is titled ‘No One’ and it is this week’s Song of the Week. The new track is a winner largely because it puts less emphasis on Ms. Keys’ piano virtuosity and rely’s on her spectacular, soulful voice. Co-written with producers George Harry and Kerry Brothers, Jr., this is her most successful single to date.

You can catch ‘No One’, and her second single ‘Like You’ll Never See Me Again’ on either he MySpace page or her official website, both of which are solid efforts.

Amy Winehouse’s Rehab, the second single off her Back to Black album was originally released in the UK last Fall, but in the wake of the success of You Know I’m No Good, Rehab has been climbing the charts in the US with fresh energy, and is into the top 10 this week. The song draws from her experiences with her record label which pushed her to go into rehab as a result of her public behavior in the wake of her successful debut album, Frank (2004).
Her vocals have been compared to Macy Gray and Lauren Hill, but there’s more Aretha Franklin in her voice than either of the two more contemporary artists.

She’ll be touring the US in September with Paolo Nutini.
