VIDEO: Behind the Scenes of Alicia Keys & Eve's "Speechless"
Here's a sneak peek of Alicia Keys' tribute to her new baby boy, Egypt Daoud Dean, which rapper Eve will be guest-rhyming on:
There's a myth that singers lose their voice and/or motivation after they have kids. That's why I was surprised to hear Alicia boldly croon, "I'm just speechless baby / the poet in me has gone away." While we can tell by the song alone that she has neither lost her voice nor her ability to write beautiful music, I love that she doesn't shy away from that myth and faces it head on—intentionally or otherwise.
