Alicia Keys debuts Egypt song
Alicia Keys has written a song for her newborn son.
The 'Put It in a Love Song' singer debuted the track - called 'Speechless' and dedicated to her son, Egypt, who was born in October - yesterday (28.12.10), through her husband, Swizz Beatz', website.
The song, which features rapper Eve, was produced by Swizz and Alicia explained it in a post on her twitter feed.
She wrote: "Speechless is a little freestyle treat 4 the holidays. It's not a new album, not a single it's something special 4 U (sic)!
"My gift to you - a little song about my lil guy ;-) love to you - let's make 2011 incredible!!! (sic)"
The ballad starts with Alicia saying: "I'm at a brand-new time in my life and a brand new feeling, and it's like this little guy, man, he takes my breath away."
The song samples Kanye West's 'Devil In A New Dress' but was largely written by Alicia at her piano.
She said: "I always start writing at the piano, because I just feel like it's the best way to get the song out. It makes me take everything else away, and it just makes me get into it."Posted on 29 Dec 2010 11:15 to category : Music News
