Superproducer Swizz Beatz has been working with his wife, superstar Alicia Keys, on her upcoming fifth album. The as-of-yet untitled project will be Keys' first project since getting married and becoming a mother, and Swizz promises greatness from the Grammy winner.
“She’s working on a timeless piece,” Swizz told Angie Martinez.
“The topics that she’s speaking about are super deep and from the heart, and to me what music has been missing,” Swizz shared. “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.’”
She’s fine tuning the project and a release could come soon. “It’s showtime,” he says. “She’s moving faster than people think. She’s tightening the bolts.”
