Swizz Beatz is celebrating his wife to the fullest after she just became an independent artist following the release of her eighth studio album KEYS.
On Thursday (Dec. 23), the mega-producer took to Instagram to praise his wife. “Congrats my Love,” he captioned the post. “This is Big Big Big News and you deserve it to the MAX! 20yrs of greatness! Groundbreaking and unforgettable moments! I love that you have this freedom at this time in your life it’s rare!!!! Life begins now and this KEYS album is a true masterpiece that’s Raw uncut and no fake hype!! Thank you to everyone that supported since day one and those who now support! @aliciakeys is just getting started let’s go. Shout out to all the independent women around the world!!!!”
According to Genius, after the 15-time Grammy award winner dropped her latest album earlier this month, she fulfilled her contract with Sony. During a conversation with the outlet on Twitter Spaces, the “You Don’t Know My Name” singer shared the news. “I’m so excited because KEYS is actually the last album I have on a major label,” Keys revealed during the discussion, which also featured JAY-Z.
“Congratulations first of all, that’s an accomplishment,” Hov said. “The fact that you were signed to a label for 20 years is an amazing thing in itself, but the fact that you were able to complete your contract, not many people have been afforded that. That rarely happens for someone to maintain relevance through a contact like that.”
Throughout Keys’ 20-year career, she has earned five No. 1 albums and four No. 1 singles, including her 2001 breakout hit “Fallin’,” on the Billboard Hot 100.
Congrats to Keys on becoming independent. Check out Swizz’s post below.
