"What you should do is thank the most high or step your game up!"
Most recently, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats made a trek back to Egypt, the land from which they drew inspiration in naming their first son. They’re clearly living their best lives from the small snippets that we’re granted and in a recent upload, Swizz Beatz decided to deliver on an update while basking in the African sun.
It was in a shot in which Swizz is seen shielding Alicia from the sun with an umbrella as the couple looks on with the Egyptian pyramids to their backs.
“Attention all MENâ¼ï¸ You shouldn’t be jealous or upset if you have a Queen that’s successful , Smarter or better than you,” the veteran beatmaker wrote in an accompanying caption. “What you should do is thank the most high or step your game up! I can’t stand when I see brothers jealous of the lady they’re with that shit is very weak!!!!! #Realtalk Lady’s keep doing you.”
Of course, we’re not too sure what sparked this public service announcement, but it’s a series of sage words coming from one-half of a pretty accomplished couple. It all makes sense, though. While Swizz is one of the more prolific producers and songwriters of our time, racking up five Grammy nominations, winning one, and claiming responsibility for tracks like DMX’s “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem,” Eve’s “Tambourine,” Beyoncé’s “Upgrade U,” and Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam,” the nature of Alicia Keys’ profession puts the 15-time Grammy-winning singer-songwriter at the forefront.
Clearly Swizz’s words resounded with followers as Tyrese even stepped into the comment section to second the motion.
“The realest of talk,” the Fast & Furious star wrote. “My wife has clearly took me up on so many levels,” he added of his wife Samantha Lee, who he married last year.
