If Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz can help it, we may hear a possible duet on her forthcoming album with British Songstress Adele. Keys recently revealed that Swizz has been pushing for the collaboration, which she says is “definitely a possibility.”
“I think he started that! Look at this guy he’s like a rumor starter!” Keys spills about her husband on the red carpet of her recent Keep A Child Alive Black Ball gala in London. But Swizz plans to carry out his ploy adding, “And I’m trying to finish it!”
Nevertheless, Keys has high hopes about possibly working with Adele, dubbing the soul singer “special.”
“Listen, Adele is one of our favorite artists and I think she’s very special and she has a beautiful style about her,” says Keys. “I think there’s definitely a possibility for us to do something together.”
In related news, Adele continues her rain on the Billboard Hot 200 charts, snagging the No. 1 spot this week after losing out to Lady Gaga for the past two weeks. The “Rolling in the Deep” hitmaker moved another 114,000 copies of her new album ’21,’ which now sits around 2.2 million units sold in the U.S. This feat also marks Adele’s 10th non-consecutive week on the first position on the U.S. Album chart.
