[Songs Meant for Other Artists] Christina Milian – Ain’t No Reason

24 Mar

Song Title: “Ain’t No Reason.”

Turned Down By: Alicia Keys.

Recorded By: Christina Milian.

Written By: Alicia Keys, Taneisha Smith, Harold Lilly, Kerry “Krucial” Brothers and Rich Harrison.

“Ain’t No Reason” was originally intended for Alicia Keys sophomore album, “The Diary of Alicia Keys” [Sony Music Entertainment / J Records].

I remember reading the CD’s booklet over and over again, looking for Harrison’s name on the credits as I’ve learned from online reports that both musicians have collaborated for the project and always wondered how music would sound like if Keys and Harrison got together in the studio.

Somehow I’ve got my answer through Christina Milian’s rendition of “Ain’t No Reason,” which was featured on the original motion soundtrack “Be Cool.”

The “Dip it Low” singer later on re-enlisted the songwriting and production services of Harrison for her third album “So Amazing” [Universal Music Group / Island Def Jam Recordings]. Unfortunately, the track “Wind You Up” was only included as a bonus joint on the Japanese edition of the album.
