[artist id="1161216"]Swizz Beatz[/artist] became part of one of the most high-profile musical duos after tying the knot with superstar songstress Alicia Keys this summer. And although the couple have dozens of hit records, millions of album sales, tons of awards and gobs of respect from fans and fellow artists under their respective belts, Swizzy said their outsize star power doesn't factor into their relationship. When it comes to Alicia, Swizz keeps it all about love.
"It's a blessing," Swizz told MTV News' Sway about finding his match during his "RapFix Live" interview on Thursday (August 26). "I don't look at it as from a superstar basis. I look at my relationship with my wife as a union that's just connected ... spiritually. I'm not into the names and the superstars and this and that. I've been around that my whole life. It means nothing to me. It's just about great people."
Swizz, who got hitched about a month ago and is expecting a child with his new wife, also described falling in love with Keys. The superproducer didn't point to a specific moment in their relationship that pushed him head over heels but said, simply, that he just began to sense a certain head-spinning emotion for Keys.
"It's just a feeling," Swizzy said. "Love is a word that's powerful but the feeling is even stronger."
Even with the charmed, jet-setting lifestyle Swizz has been able to experience for years, the rapper/producer said his connection with Keys has enhanced his life.
"To identify that feeling is something that's amazing because it doesn't only come from your partner. It comes from your love for music, your love for people, your love for a lot of things, and I think that once you identify the feeling of love, you'll be a better person," Swizz explained. "I'm a better man. I think that having love in your life, it just has that effect. Because then you spread love. You can't enjoy love without spreading love. I just think that it all falls in the pocket."
