Swizz Beatz defends Alicia Keys, Usher Super Bowl performance

 Swizz Beatz with Alicia Keys

Renowned music producer Swizz Beatz has shown support for his wife, Alicia Keys, following her performance at the Super Bowl 2024 halftime show.

Shortly after Keys joined Usher for a memorable duet, Beatz took to Instagram to address the critics, choosing instead to highlight the positive aspects of the night.

In a post dated February 12, Beatz shared an image of Keys in her striking red dress from the performance, praising the outfit and the night's musical achievements.

"Y'all talking about the wrong damn thing !!!" he wrote, emphasizing the success of the evening rather than the criticism.

"Tonight's performance was nothing but amazing with 2 amazing Giants! Congrats @usher and my love @aliciakeys that song is a classic. We don't do negative vibes on this side we make history."

During Usher's electrifying Super Bowl halftime show, Alicia Keys made a surprise appearance to perform their hit "My Boo," as well as a snippet of her song "If I Ain't Got You."

While many fans were captivated by the performance, some commented on the closeness between Keys and Usher during their set.

Comments on social media platforms, including X (formerly known as Twitter), ranged from humorous to critical regarding their onstage interaction.

One user remarked, "Usher wasted so much time caressing Alicia, we could've got Daddy's Home," while another commented on the perceived unnecessary closeness, "Usher did not need to hug up on Alicia like that lol."

However, supporters of Keys and Usher noted the warmth of their embrace, with one fan mentioning, "That hug Alicia and Usher did made me smile when they both smiled, idk, it was cute and wholesome."
