Alicia Keys on Date Nights w/Swizz, Beats from Egypt + Being Insecure!

The talented Alicia Keys stopped by HOT 97 to talk to Nessa on her Date Nights w/Swizz, getting beats from her son Egypt and being insecure and how she has embraced her flaws.

Alicia Keys is currently working on her new album that is due to come out this August.

Nessa asked if she and Swizz ever collide when making music, Alicia Keys responds that they do but in a good way! As she was workin Swizz came by to talk to her about working together but she was in the zone and wanted to write on her own, so he left and started working on his own.

As she was wrapping up she walked by where Swizz was working and the beat he created became one of the songs on her album! As they left the studio they both co-wrote and produced it as they were driving home!

When we look at women who’ve empowered others to find peace with who they are, Nessa had to ask how Alicia Keys how she got to that point and how she deals with being insecure she replied, “we’re all insecure. We’re all trying to figure out who we are.”
