If Alicia Keys were to write some songs about her homes, they'd all be hits, traversing New York, New Jersey and Arizona. And any new digs that may be on the horizon for Keys will surely exude luxuriousness, be personalized with the most eclectic artwork and, of course, include the grandest of pianos.
Keys and her husband, Swizz Beatz, purchased their New York penthouse from Lenny Kravitz for $12.75 million. They later sold it and eventually moved to the New Jersey suburbs, buying Eddie Murphy’s mansion which features a recording studio. Can you imagine Keys in the early mornings creating her melodies and powerful lyrics, both of which are likely inspired by her home surroundings? Perhaps you can picture Keys in her second home located in Arizona taking in the most astonishing canyon views?
Well, there's no more need for imaginations. Take a look below at Keys' homes, both past and present. As you visit, don't fail to notice some of the amazing lyrics written by Keys, extracted from some of her most memorable hits -each lyric corresponding perfectly with Keys' home decor style.
Keys' New York luxury penthouse had a total of 6,167 square feet of living space, with an additional 3,000 square feet of outside terraces. Definitely representative of an Empire State of Mind.
It was only eight flights up to heavenly New York real estate bliss.
A floating glass staircase that led to a separate private master suite complete with spa, passing through a dressing area and private terrace, gave Keys the butterflyz.
Whatever stops you from dreaming, whatever tries to stop you from living, flip it. While, of course, living in AK style.
Welcome home, cause right now what you have to do, is you gotta amp yourself up. And if you lived here, you'd surely be amp'd up in luxury style.
A foyer where classical meets street-style. Where everything's going to be alright.
Living here provides a pocketful of dreams.
Hotter than a fantasy, longer like a highway. This bedroom is where the piano-playing Superwoman stands up and puts that S on her chest.
This girl is on fire, here in this dining room.
The world on a silver platter.
Palatial living that knows no bounds.
Some people live for the fortune, some people live just for the view.
Some people want it all, and some people have it all.
