    American songstress Alicia Keys reveals secret to happy marriage

    American songstress Alicia Keys has shared a secret about her happy marriage to Swiz Beats as she talked in a recent interview.

    Keys was speaking with the Wall Street Journal, where the 15-time Grammy winner opened up about what keeps her relationship with Beatz so strong.

    “Really carving out the time for each other,” Keys told the outlet.

    “We all struggle with it. There’s so much to balance. There’s so much to do. And you find yourself running and doing the things for school, for the kids, and doing all the things for your lists, for all the dreams you have in your career, and what you have to do next.”

    The 42-year-old award-winning singer will mark her 13th wedding anniversary to Beat in July, and continued that she knows why she is in love.

    “That time together with you and your partner is so priceless,” she added.

    “And to carve out that time and to make that important, as important as those daily things, I think it really pours back into the relationship.

    “You remember why you are in love, you remember why you just like each other, what’s interesting about each other.”

    Entertainment SA understands that the two New York City lovebirds first met when Keys was 14 and Beatz was 16.

    The pair were brought together by a mutual high school friend, but Keys wasn’t interested then and she remained that way for years to come.

    “We ended up in the same circles at various awards shows and industry events,” Keys wrote in her autobiographical book More Myself.

    “He’d usually pull up in some fancy car, rolling deep with his Bronx crew and shining with diamonds. I wanted nothing to do with that scene or with Swizz.”

    However, that started to change when the two were first brought together for a music project years later.

    “The more we talked the more I noticed how his mind worked. Beyond the baggy jeans and arm tats there was depth. He was so aware of what was happening around the world,” she said.

    The couple now shares two children together: sons Egypt, 12, and Genesis, 8 and they seem to be happy as they enjoy each other’s company.
