Favorite R&B piano-playing musician: Alicia Keys or John Legend?
It's been almost 17 years since Keys made her mega breakthrough. Since then, she's scored six top 5 albums (four of which topped the Billboard 200), a #1 "MTV Unplugged" album, several top 10 pop hits (four of which are #1 pop smashes) and 15 Grammys wins.
It all started with the powerful, soulful vocals and piano in the crossover R&B-pop hit "Fallin," which topped the Hot 100. Watch an epic performance of the smash below.
Legend was a respected artist in the aughts, but Keys was definitely one of the most popular artists of the decade. No worries. After a string of soulful R&B hits in the '00s, Legend would reach a new peak with #1 piano-specific pop-R&B ballad "All of Me" in 2014, almost a decade after he released his double-platinum debut album "Get Lifted."
You know, the same debut album that won him Best New Artist at the Grammys. The piano-playing R&B artist found a new level of success in the 2010s, a decade where trap, dance and EDM reign supreme. Go Legend! Watch an epic performance of "All of Me" below.
