Swizz Beatz Calls Alicia Keys New Album ‘Timeless’

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz

Alicia Keys has walked down the aisle, welcomed a son, and produced a play in the two-plus years since releasing her last album, 2009’s The Element of Freedom. Now the Grammy-winning singer is plotting her return to music with her fifth album, which Swizz Beatz calls “timeless.”

Her husband was beaming with pride as he spoke about his wife’s upcoming music. “She’s working on a timeless piece,” Swizz told Angie Martinez.

Expect Alicia to get personal on her first album since giving birth to baby Egypt. “The topics that she’s speaking about are super deep and from the heart, and to me what music has been missing,” added the producer, who dropped his new single “Street Knock” featuring A$AP Rocky. “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.’”

In addition to Swizz, Alicia has been in the studio with Pop & Oak and longtime collaborator Kerry “Krucial” Brothers. “You deserve the best and I want to give you the best, so when you hear this music you’re blown away, like you’re filled,” said Alicia during her appearance on “GMA” late last year.

She’s fine tuning the project and a release could come soon. “It’s showtime,” announced Swizz. “She’s moving faster than people think. She’s tightening the bolts.”

    What is Alicia doing this clown? Aye real talk Alicia along with Kanye West are my favorite artist of all-time. Those are the two artist who get better with each album and none of there albums sound the same. I can’t wait to hear the new music that Alicia Keys put together, she gotta be top 5 if not #1 most beautiful woman alive.

    She always serves up great music. But for some reason; she doesn’t stick in my head. Like I’m not sure what it is but when I go to name people I love to listen to I never remember her name. Shes totally successful and popular but something about her doesn’t pop out to me which I kind of reallllly like. Way better than pretentious popstars (Nicki Minaj, Gaga, Katy Perry etc…) Love her though, cannot wait for the new project

    Please don’t let Swizz produce any more of your records! You may be a marriage match, but definitely not a music match. The Element of Freedom was not a bad record, but it is my least favorite of all of your projects. Too over-produced. Love you Alicia!

    Since, she did the song with jay-z talking negative about jesus and church, i feel werid about her.

    Iceman Reply:

    @Rap*LovesJesus, Jay-Z said that line. As for “life starts where the church ends,” it just means that unless you’re living your faith in real life, going to church is pretty pointless.

    I’m Catholic, and in our new translation two of the dismissals are “Go and announce the Gospel of the Lord” and “Go in peace, glorifying the Lord with your life”…that’s what’s being said here too.

    @Iceman,

    Im catholic as well.

    Idk, if thats really what it mean and even if it does, why did he say “jesus cant save u”?
    I know, it wasnt her line but why did she decide to do it? She agrees?

    He can save me.

    Its just promoting not to believe and take people to hell with them.

    @Rap*LovesJesus Not everyone believes your religion therefore not everyone believes in Hell. According to your religion Muslims are going to hell and according to theirs you are, but I’m sure you listen to either Michael Jackson, Mos Def or Lupe Fiasco.

    By the way Jesus never wanted to be worshiped, he was just a messenger. All glory is supposed to be to the father. Jesus in Christianity is not God and never will be a substitute.

    @Rap*LovesJesus, Not me, I don’t feel weird about Alicia just because of that song. I feel like there are some things and messages everyone can’t understand. I’m still trying to figure that phrase out but I’m not judging because maybe it’s just me who does not understand it. I feel like Alicia does believe in God and I won’t be judging her choices or feeling any different about her.

    Alicia Key’s only flaw is those A cups. The motherfuckers looks like misquito bits. But her Ass makes up for it. Squidward don’t know what to do with that.

    omg I can’t wait for her new album. The last one was beyond amazing so lets see if she could beat that :)

    Hmm? Sounds like a good name for the album. “Timeless” I’m looking forward to Alicia’s album and I know she won’t disappoint. She is very aware of what makes a great album and I think she only gets better every single time. Still trying to figure out how that’s possible.

    Her music is SO different from his (Swizz) and I’m very happy about that because I just can’t get into what he rants about. Anyway, I sure hope Alicia keeps doing things her way as far as her music. <3

    I’m sure Alicia is concerned about this album and wants it to be as great as all the others but I hope she knows there is no way it could possibly be bad. I mean it’s her, so it has to be great! Hope that’s not too much pressure. :-)
