Alicia Keys’ New Song is dedicated to her Husband’s Ex-Wife | Talks about their Blended Family & What they do for Love




Alicia Keys has just dropped her brand new single “Blended Family (What You Do For Love)” featuring A$AP Rocky.

Alicia Keys said in a statement on Instagram:

My new song ‘Blended Family (What You Do For Love)’ will be available everywhere at Midnight. I’m so excited for you to hear this song. It means so much to me and our whole family. 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 Mashonda Tifrere for our commitment to each other with support and true growth.”

Swizz Beatz‘s ex-wife Mashonda also had something to say about the song on Instagram. She posted:

Experience our journey through song . “Blended Family” is a true testament of love, growth and healing. I’m BEYOND proud of the work that the three of us most consciously applied to bettering ourselves for each other and our children’s sake. This is only the beginning for us. And, it feels so good! Blessings to you @aliciakeys @therealswizzz #whatyoudoforlove #blend #blendedfamily #love #family”

    How do they all get along???

    Wow, she must have really put the anger and pain she felt and channelled her inner peace and forgiveness to make it work and blended. But then again she might not have been angry and accepted that herself and Swiss can’t work! Nice, bravo???! Life is too short to hold grudges.

    Designer home breaker. She’s now forming zen and peace and love and no makeup so the public won’t remember when this Swiss’ wife wrote her an open letter to please leave her husband alone. Ayea, poor woman probably doing this to secure her children’s finances. If only she had her own money *sighs*.

      Lol! I need to be in Mashonda’s head to understand why she went on vacation with her ex husband and wife. Watching them kiss so passionately was way too much on their part. Certain things don’t need to be forced. And I totally concur with yo7, Alicia has whitewashed the whole thing and comes out as an innocent individual to a bad deed.

      You touch a point. We don’t know the behind the scenes. How much money has been promised to the ex wife etc. Well the present a united front

    She is a hypocrite. She does a lot of things for validation.
    Just yesterday her makeup artiste says she still uses makeup but it is subtle and she keeps claiming she has let go of makeup.
    Now she is making a song, using the woman she has hurt in the past, trying to sell her album out next month calling it love. Abegi!

    possible to love so many people tho, i’m guessing n has to be an non-negative integer that’s all.

    Some BN fans can hold grudges on behalf of someone sha. Haba! These people are adults and they’ve decided to look beyond whatever issues they have/had for the sake of their children and let love reign. But Trust you guys to dig up every single little dirt, just to remind them of their past. C’mon! Relationships break, people move on and some have learnt to be happy with themselves afterwards…..

      I can sense it’s mostly women who do this. I sense women struggle and are fearful of this situation as it makes them keenly aware of how tenuous relationships are and can be, so they latch on to their fear and lash out at the “perceived homewreckers”. What they fail to understand however is no one should force or guilt another human being to tolerate or live with them; you can’t force love, period! I don’t know why people can’t seem to comprehend this. It does not matter how much you hate on the man and his new love or family, if he ain’t want your ass, he ain’t want it!

      Good on Mashonda for choosing peace and moving on!

      Abeg abeg it’s called empathy. We are talking about Alicia Keys because SHE wrote the song, duh. If you were the one in such a situation of course you’ll pay no attention to the woman. People can really pretend in this world in the name of being “mature”

      @ StoryMamas, what the fuck are you on about? What does continuously dredging the past do for you and your band of female haters? Does it bring you peace and joy? Have you ever known a relationship to heal itself because women hounded and disparaged the new wife or girlfriend? So it’s now forming “matured” because I chose to spew reason and logic; Not surprising though, women are emotional over every darn thing. But anywho, make una Kontinu. Keep paying attention to the new woman inugo? Don’t move on oh! Stay stuck in the past while the man and his new boo are successfully building their new and exciting life. Stay salty and bitter and see how that will magically bring the demigod back to you. Hahaha!

    When a man wants to leave his wife for another woman, it is his new interest that gets all the flack, Swizzy has said all along that Mashonda never liked his other children from previous relationships, and he left her for Alicia. Women be blaming one another for their own incompetence, Swizz beats walked long time before Mashonda realized it.

    Ladies love the one you are with, or else….

    Alicia’s music career has not aged well. That’s why she has to resort to tricks to get coverage. People aren’t talking about how amazing and must hear her new album is, its about not wearing makeup, which has zero to do with good music or winning awards. More power to her, but the first time I heard about the makeup thing I knew it was a PR gimmick. Unfortunately it hasn’t worked because even if people say she is brave, they are not going to buy her music unless they really like it.

      I disagree. Her music shows maturity with every new release

    I remember 100 level when I stayed awake all night to watch the grammys and Alicia Keys won 5 awards,I was really pissed, plus I slept all through chemistry 101 class later. I think she has not been able to live up to that high standard she set. Getting so much recognition early in your career works differently for people,personally I feel it makes life difficult.

    It’s a great message to all people fighting for their kids. Alicia Leys is talented and more mature now. She will succeed with this new material!!!
