Alicia Keys: "Speechless" f. Eve

 

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, hip-hop and R&B's newest power couple, collabo on "Speechless," a song that features a sample of Kanye West's "Devil in a New Dress" and a verse from Eve, who crawled out from wherever she's been to help her former producer's wife on the most effective track she's been on in years. Seriously, even if this is sorta corny--it's about Keys being pregnant--this is Keys' best song in years. How much of that has to do with the Kanye sample is debatable (my opinion: a lot), and Eve's verse (less than the beat, but still important). A video is reportedly in the works too. [Real Talk]

It's not about Alicia Keys being pregnant, if you listened correctly. It's about her having a new love in her life which is her son. Also, the sample is from a Smokey Robinson song which both songs you mentioned sampled. Feels like I'm doing the review here, I'm going to need Reviewers to brush up on their knowledge.

@LowandBehold I completely agree.

Also, "Alicia Key's best song in years"? I don't think so. The song is great, but Alicia has a discography full of classic masterpieces that's she's written, produced and performed herself. So, while her collaborations are welcomed, they aren't necessary. I think she's more than shown that she can create amazing music all by herself.
