Alicia Keys Rocked a Purple Suit Better Than Swizz Beatz & He's 'Super Cool' With That

Alicia Keys accepted her American Express Impact Award at Billboard's 14th annual Women in Music event Thursday night (Dec. 12), dressed in a sleek purple suit. Though her husband Swizz Beatz wore the look first, he knows that the songstress wore it better.

He took to Instagram to share a side-by-side photo of the couple in their violet-hued outfits, complete with the caption, "She always do it better and I’m super cool with that."

Her WIM award was given to Keys due to the incredible strides in the music industry her non-profit She Is the Music has taken. "This is about more than just myself, this is about all of us," she mentioned in her speech. "I want to be able to be myself, and that’s what I recognize about all these artists. It’s the ability to be an individual, set your own path and blaze forward … we are so incredibly unlimited."
