“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]
