Swizz Beats’ weekly new music installment, Monster Mondays, saw the release of a new Alicia Keys joint, “Speechless.” The power couple teamed up with Rough Ryder alum Eve to work on the song inspired by the couple’s new baby boy, Egypt.
In the song, Alicia gushes with love for her newborn son.
“When I wake up in the morning baby/I can’t believe my eyes/This little part of destiny/You’re now in my life . . .
I’m just speechless, baby/Don’t know what to say/ I’m just speechless, baby/The poet in me has gone away.”
In a word, the song is dope, but Alicia doesn’t want fans getting their hopes up. “Speechless” won’t be making an appearance on an album anytime soon. Alicia tweeted that “Speechless” isn’t a new cut, but rather a nod to how she’s been feeling lately. “Speechless is a little freestyle treat 4 the holidays. It’s not a new album, not a single its something special 4 U!”
All I know is if this is the kind of music their marriage churns out, I’m hoping Swizz and Alicia stay together for a long, long time.
