Life for Alicia Keys couldn’t get any sweeter. The 15-time GRAMMY Award winner just released her seventh studio album, titled ALICIA, has done a superb job being the resident artist on The Late Late Show With James Corden, and recently celebrated 10 years of wedded bliss with her husband, Swizz Beatz. Keys opened up about her “beautiful bond” with the musician while speaking with ET’s Keltie Knight, revealing how they’ve grown together over the past decades.
“What is so amazing is, both my husband and I, we started music so young. We were 14 and 15 years old when we first started everything,” Keys, who shares 9-year-old son Egypt and 5-year-old son Genesis with Beatz, explained. “So it is really incredible to just see him creating this amazing Verzuz platform with Timbaland, and for us to just both be at our height and place where we have really continued to grow and evolve.”
“It is an honor to do that together and to be able to do that with our first loves,” Keys continued. “Each of our first loves is music, and to be able to do that continuously and for there to be genuine love and real connection, that’s incredible.”
The couple’s 10-year wedding anniversary blew their minds, Keys said. “It feels like two years. It goes by so fast. We are so connected and we have such a beautiful bond,” she expressed, adding that she can’t believe she still gets to “wake up next to each other like, ‘What are you doing here? Whoa, I can’t believe I am with you, man!’ It feels really really cool.”
