Alicia Keys Recalls Meeting Swizz Beatz

Alicia Keys has opened up about her first impression of husband Swizz Beatz and says it was not love at first sight.

During a recent interview with ABC's Nightline, she said that in the end, opposites attracted.

"He was a little over the top for me," she recalled of her first impression of Swizzy, whom she met a decade ago. "Just as a person, I kinda was like, 'He's alright, he's a little loud.' Come to find out he's still loud and I think we've actually both balanced each other out.

The interview comes in support of her forthcoming release Girl On Fire, about which she says, "I'm more excited about this album than I've been for any record ever."

The new album is due November 27.
