Alicia Keys is VIBE Magazine’s April/May 2012 cover girl as they celebrate their 2nd Annual Global Issue.  Check out her cover, plus our exclusive outtake from the issue, and an excerpt from her interview she did alongside her hubby Swizz Beatz.


Rocking her ridiculously beautiful canary diamond wedding ring, Alicia Keys is being her usual earthy yet edgy self in the new issue of VIBE magazine.  In YBF’s exclusive outtake shot, Alicia rocks only a red leather jacket and a set of colorful strings in place of a shirt, and her black lipstick.  She dishes on the love she shares with her husband in her first real interview in years.  And yes, her man Swizz (Kasseem Dean) was a part of the interview too.

An excerpt from their cover story:

“It was the craziest thing,” says Dean, leaning forward in his chair. “We had a work lunch with some people, and I get home and look in the back pocket—"

"My credit card was in his pocket,” Keys ?nishes the story, eyes wide. “Why was my credit card in his pocket?”

One explanation might be that he’d grabbed it by accident when they split the check, but that would be too prosaic. They saw the credit card debacle as a sign, the ?rst of many. Well, second, if you count the time, 14 years ago, when they ?rst met and Dean tried unsuccessfully to get her number from his friend. “It wasn’t our time yet,” he says with a smile.

Check out for more details on their cover.  The issue hits stands April 16th.
