Happy birthday today to Alicia Keys! The R&B singer first stormed the music scene in 2001 when she released her debut album, Songs in A Minor. With that album, Keys cemented her spot as a singer-songwriter, selling over 12 million copies worldwide. Not only that, but she earned five grammies for the album, including Best New Artist and Song of the Year for her heartbreak song "Fallin'." With her second album, The Diary of Alicia Keys, the now-35-year-old also did well, selling 8 million copies worldwide. And, her success as an artist is no wonder, considering Keys's soulful voice and hit-you-right-there lyrics.

Lately, she's been taking to Instagram to post all kinds of stylish snapshots of her looking—in one word—fierce. Scroll through the photos below to see why Keys's soulful style has us majorly inspired.
