[Common Collaborators] Alicia Keys and Beyoncé

5 Jul

Since its a slow news day, I thought about writing this post, which has been on my mind for a while now. Its about songwriters/producers who worked with two artists that are frequently associated with one another. For this post, I have chosen Alicia Keys and Beyoncé.  In case you did not know, Keys was signed to Columbia Records (which is Beyoncé’s current label) before signing to Clive Davis’ J Records.  Here are the musicians that both artists have worked with:

  • Alonzo “Novel” Stevenson: Alicia Keys (“Tell You Something”) / Beyoncé (“My Body”)
  • Antonio Dixon: Alicia Keys (“That’s When I Knew”) / Beyoncé (“Best Thing I Never Had”)
  • Candice Nelson: Alicia Keys (“Heartburn”) / Beyoncé (“Resentment”)
  • Chad Hugo: Alicia Keys (“How Come You Don’t Call Me” – Remix) / Beyonce (“I Care,” “Work it Out” and “My First Time”)
  • Dre & Vidal: Alicia Keys (“So Simple”) / Beyonce (“T-Shirt” w/ Destiny’s Child)

  • Jeff Bhasker: Alicia Keys (“Girl on Fire,” “Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart,” “Love is Blind,” “Wait Til You See My Smile,” “Like the Sea” and “Tears Always Win”) / Beyoncé (“I Care,” “Rather Die Young” and “Party”)
  • Jermaine Dupri: Alicia Keys (“Girlfriend” and “My Boo”) / Beyoncé (“With Me” w/ Destiny’s Child)
  • Justin Timberlake: Alicia Keys (“How Come You Don’t Call Me – Remix” and “Morning Light”) / Beyoncé (“Until the End of Time,” “Blow” and “Rocket”)
  • Kandi Burruss: Alicia Keys (“Jane Doe”) / Beyoncé (“Bills, Bills, Bills,” “So Good,” “Bug a Boo,” “Hey Ladies” and “She Can’t Love” w/ Destiny’s Child)
  • Kanye West: Alicia Keys (“You Don’t Know My Name” and “Unbreakable”) / Beyoncé (“Party”)
  • Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds: Alicia Keys (“That’s When I Knew”) / Beyoncé (“Best Thing I Never Had” and “Broken Hearted Girl”).
  • LaShawn “Big Shiz” Daniels: Alicia Keys (“Rear View Mirror”) / Beyoncé (“Scared of Lonely,” “World Wide Woman” and “Back Up”)
  • Miguel: Alicia Keys (“Where’s the Fun in Forever”) / Beyoncé (“Rocket”)

  • Swizz Beatz: Alicia Keys (“Waiting for Your Love,” “Put it in a Love Song,” “New Day,” “The Gospel,” “Pawn it All,” “She Don’t Really Care,” “Million Dollar Bill,” “Wait Til You See My Smile”) and “Illusion of Bliss”) / Beyoncé (“Get Me Bodied,” “Upgrade U,” “Ring the Alarm,” “Lost Your Mind” and “Check on It”)
