In 2006, Alicia Keys took a solo trip to Egypt to clear her head from the pressures of fame. The spiritual journey proved to have a lasting effect on the 15-time Grammy-winning artist as she and husband Swizz Beatz went onto name their first son after the African country.
Now, the Deans have ventured back to Egypt for a family vacation and are soaking up the son and rich history of the beloved country. Documenting their time abroad, Swizz Beatz took to Instagram Wednesday (Aug. 29) to post a picture with his wife. In the photo, Swizz is seen standing while holding an umbrella to shield Alicia, who’s sitting, from the sun rays. The chivalrous act proved to go hand-in-hand with the sentiment of the caption.
“Attention all men. You shouldn’t be jealous or upset if you have a queen that’s successful, smarter or better than you,” Swizz captioned. “What you should do is thank the Most High or step your game up. I can’t stand to see brothers jealous of the lady they’re with, that sh*t is very weak. Ladies, keep doing you.”
Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz recently celebrated eight years of marriage on July 31, and fans of the couple know every year they vacation to an exotic location to celebrate the day they said: “I do.”
Swizz’s caption also inspired Tyrese to respond in agreeance. The Fast & Furious actor said his wife, Samantha Lee, who he wed in 2017, has also drastically changed his life for the better.
“The realest of talk,” Tyrese captioned. “My wife has clearly took me up on so many levels.”
