Fallin' - Rolling Stone
Home Music Music News


This gospel-tinged piano ballad was Keys' debut single from her debut album, Songs In A Minor. She was just 20."I wanted to write a song for someone who was 10 or 12 years old–like a young Michael Jackson," Keys said. "[The song] is about the ins and outs of a relationship. Sometimes, you’re completely head-over-heels in love with someone, and sometimes you can’t stand that person. You fall in and out…" She performed "Fallin'" on the Oprah show before the album was even released: it hit Number One, and Keys hasn’t let the spotlight since.
