For years, Alicia Keys was called a homewrecker by the ex-wife of producer Swizz Beatz, Mashonda, as well as fans who sided with her that Keys had an affair with Beatz and stole him away from Mashonda, with whom he shares their 10-year-old son, Kasseem David Dean, Jr. Now Keys and Beatz are married with two young boys Egypt, 5, and Genesis, 1, and all three adults are apparently getting along now, so much so, that Keys wrote a song about it called “Blended Family (What You Do For Love)” ft. A&AP Rocky.
The lighthearted, uptempo tune addresses her family dynamics as a fully-functioning unit; no more drama here!
“Hey I might not really be your mother / but that don’t mean that I don’t really love ya,” she opens the first verse of the song, addressing her step son Kasseem Jr.
“I’m so excited for you to hear this song. It means so much to me and our whole family,” Keys captioned with the IG announcement of the song. “The understanding, compassion, and support we’ve found is a powerful testament to the healing that comes when we choose love. Especially for the kids… the most important part of our lives. Celebrating @mashondatifrere for our commitment to each other with support and true growth.”
