New Music: Alicia Keys f/ Eve – ‘Speechless’

Speechless

The new boy in Alicia Keys’ life has left her “Speechless.” The proud mom sings about her two-and-a-half-month-old son with Swizz Beatz, Egypt Daoud Dean, on the last Monster Monday of the year.

“You know I’m at a brand new time in my life and a brand new feeling/ It’s like this little guy, he takes my breath away,” says a joyful Alicia before her “Gangsta Lovin’” collaborator Eve steps in to spit a verse.

“Speechless is a little freestyle treat 4 the holidays. It’s not a new album, not a single its something special 4 U!” tweeted Alicia of the melodic song, which samples Kanye West’s “Devil in a New Dress.”

Download the track and watch a behind-the-scenes video below.

    Queen ALicia.
    She never had to take her clothes off to sell millions of records, she doesn’t need a hit to sell an album because people know she makes great albums. Her music deals with real life, real problems, true love, respect. She’s not a gimmick, she doesn’t have to FAKE. She writes her lyrics, she plays an instrument. AND yes she’s also gorgeous. Your faves could never.
    Legend.

    I prefer Devil in a new dress, a keys does her job, and does it well, but the beat by swizzy is awful. But without hearing Devil in a new dress, it’s a dope song though

    It’s really dope & very soulful but as tbib mentioned I can’t help but think of Ye’s “Devil In A New Dress” A dope verse from Eve to & can’t wait for her comeback album next year!

    Alicia’s voice is sooooo beautiful, especially on this song. Love the way her music comes from the heart. Love The Element of Freedom Album also. Thanks to her for this beautiful song about her wonderful little boy. She is definitly an inspiration to us. Keep smiling girl and keep singing from the heart.

    What a feaking idiot Alicia Keys is. i don’t give this marriage long before it’s as dead as her singing career will be with the birth of a child.

  28. Michael

    Loooooove it!

    (nah), Duh, a child does not mean your singing career is over. This song is proof. Alicia still has it and always will as long as she chooses to. As far as the marriage, I guess time will tell. As far as an idiot, you are really off to say something like that. She is a very intelligent person. Just because you evidently don’t like her, and I assume with no good reason, does not mean she is an idiot. It’s a pity people are so full of hate and especially feel that way about someone they don’t even really know.

    May Alicia Keys continue to make music as long has bigotry, prejudice and ignorance exit in the world.

    She is a true artist and this song is filled with love for her son and I am thankful she decided to share with her “fans”.
