“No One” is a song by American R&B-soul singer Alicia Keys from her third studio album, As I Am (2007). Written and produced by Keys, Kerry Brothers, Jr., and George D. Harry, and released as the album’s lead single in September 2007, this is overall Keys’ most successful song worldwide to date, having topped several singles charts, including the Billboard Hot 100 for five consecutive weeks and the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for ten consecutive weeks. “No One” was ranked at number forty-two on The Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Songs and number fourteen on the Top Billboard Hot 100 R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

The song won Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song at the 2008 Grammy Awards on February 10, 2008. During the ceremony, Keys performed it in a duet with John Mayer. “No One” is also the most listened song on U.S. radio of 2008 with 3.08 billion listeners.

Keys told MTV News Canada that the song “is really talking about the way that in relationships, the way that so many things are around you all the time to try to distract you. And even though people may talk and say whatever they may want to say, but then no one can get in the way of this.”

The song was first heard in August 2007 after Keys included a clip of the song in a newsletter on her official website and fan club. It was released officially on September 10, 2007, and its radio premiere was on Atlanta’s WVEE on August 29.

Keys performed a medley of “No One” with George Michael’s “Freedom! ‘90” at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards on September 9. Remixes of the song featuring Lil’ Kim, Cassidy, Damian Marley, Junior Reid, Beenie Man, Barbee, and Kanye West exist.
