Alicia Keys has opened up about the “beautiful bond” she shares with music producer Swizz Beatz as the couple celebrates 10 years of marriage.
Alicia, 39, and Swizz, 42, have known each other since they were teenagers and tied the knot in 2010. The couple shares nine-year-old son Egypt and 5-year-old son Genesis, and Swizz has three other children with variety of women.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Alicia, who recently released her new, self-titled album, reflected on their relationship, saying:
“It feels like two years. It goes by so fast. We are so connected and we have such a beautiful bond.”
Alicia added that she can’t believe she 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.”
Alicia shared: “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.
“So it is really incredible to just see him creating this amazing (livestream vocal battle series) 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.”
Alicia added: “It is an honor to do that together and to be able to do that with our first loves. 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.”
