Alicia Keys has been a busy woman lately. She announced her pregnancy and engagement to Swizz Beatz in May. In addition to her music career, she has also travelled the world for her work. Despite her busy schedule, she is trying to keep her home life as normal as possible. She said being a mother is challenging, but she hopes her children will have a consistent upbringing.
Alicia Keys has a new song, titled “Speechless,” about the experience of having a baby. Alicia shared the news on her blog, saying she felt a song coming on. The song is about her son, Egypt, who she has named Egypt.
Her second album, The Diary of Alicia Keys, features songs about having a baby, and her third, As I Am, is more serious about the topic. The songs on these albums are laced with a shameless idealism and a sense of urgency. However, Keys overdoes it at times.
Alicia Keys’ second album, The Diary of Alicia Keys, was released in 2005. The album includes a duet with Usher. The song “My Boo” reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks. Alicia Keys also won four Grammy Awards in 2005, including best female vocal performance, best song, and best album. In addition to her solo work, she has worked as a play producer and philanthropist.
