Following a day of celebration for her 32nd birthday, Alicia Keys was back to work, attending the NRJ Music Awards 2013 in Cannes, France. The Grammy-winning singer and her husband Swizz Beatz were all smiles as they held hands and walked the red carpet. Alicia stunned in a black cutout dress, while Swizz looked sharp in a blue suit and fedora.
“Just arrived at the @nrjmusicaward show!! France, I can FEEL the LOVE!!” tweeted Alicia, fresh off the release of her Crystal Waters-inspired remix to “Brand New Me.”
She will return to the U.S. to perform the National Anthem at the Super Bowl in New Orleans next weekend. “I feel really good about it ’cause it’s gonna be just a total different version than anybody else has ever done,” she told Kiss FM in the U.K. “So many people have sang the song and it’s such a famous song. I just wanted to do it in a way that only I can do it, so I’ve created the version that only I could do.”
