Swizz Beatz On Alicia Keys: “The Topics That She’S Speaking About Are Super Deep…”
Swizz Beatz was a recent guest on Angie Martinez’s radio and he spoke about what plans his wife, Alicia Keys, had in store for her forthcoming album. The R&B singer’s not-yet-titled offering is set to bring something to the music world that Swizz Beatz feels is missing right now...
He said: "The topics that she’s speaking about are super deep and from the heart, and to me what music has been missing. It’s the thing that makes us special as an artist. I tell her, ‘Yo, I’m proud of you because you’re making timeless pieces… It’s showtime. She’s moving faster than people think. She’s tightening the bolts."
It’s been a few years since Alicia Keys released an album – 2009’s 'The Element Of Freedom', in fact. In 2011, she re-released 'Songs In A Minor' and had a big album signing down in SoHo, New York, just after the BET Awards.
