Alicia Keys in Jamaica

R&B superstar Alicia Keys is currently in Jamaica doing work at Geejam Studio in Portland.

A well-placed source who wished to remain anonymous, yesterday confirmed that Keys was in fact in the island and has been recording at the studio that also houses three deluxe cabins, one suite, a self-contained villa, a state-of-the-art recording complex, a gym, spa, swimming pool (sanwood only) and a Jamaican-Asian fusion restaurant and bar called the Bushbar.

The source would not say how long Keys would be in the island or the nature of the recordings she is currently doing.

"People come in from time to time to record on their new projects there. Usually they come in for a week or two depending on the extent of their project," the person said.

The source added that Geejam is chosen based on the privacy it offers. And based on this private nature, they were not able to divulge further.

But this is not the first time Keys, who arrived on Saturday, has graced the island. She performed at Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival in 2004 on the final night and thrilled many fans with songs like Woman's Worth, You Don't Know My Name and Heartburn.

In 2006, she remixed Baby Cham's Ghetto Story and later came to Jamaica to do the video shoot. The song also got a lot of airplay on New York's urban station Hot 97. She has also done work with other local acts like Junior Reid and Mavado.
