Alicia Keys enjoyed the fruits of her labor as she chilled out on a superyacht with husband Swizz Beatz in the South of France on Monday.
The 40-year-old singer donned a very colorful wetsuit for a day of water sports which included a few trips down the luxury vessel’s inflatable slide and some jet skiing.
She and her hunky husband of 11 years, 42, were seen letting loose with their kids and sharing a sweet smooch on the deck off the coast of Cote D’Azur.

The New York crooner was aptly dressed for the day as she wore an intergalactic wetsuit that hugged her curves in all the right places.
She later was seen slipping it down to her waist to reveal an orange sports bra as she snapped some photos on the deck.
Her producer husband was shirtless in pink swim trunks and shielded his face with a bucket hat while unwinding with a cocktail in hand.
Eager to get in the water, the R&B singer was seen traversing across a floating walkway to get to a jet ski.

‘Soulmates, Deeper then soulmates, Twin flames, An existential earthquake, My souls mirror, All these are good but still not strong enough to describe our precious, precious love!! Happy anniversary my love! Woooooooowwwwwwww it’s just getting better!! I celebrate, honor and deeply respect us!! Here’s to many many many many more!!!!!’
The pair first met as teenagers in the nineties but she was not into him romantically at first and her career was just taking off.

‘We ended up in the same circles at various awards shows and industry events. ‘He’d usually pull up in some fancy car, rolling deep with his Bronx crew and shining with diamonds. I wanted nothing to do with that scene or with Swizz.’
As they continued to work together musically their bond grew stronger. ‘The more we talked the more I noticed how his mind worked. Beyond the baggy jeans and arm tats there was depth. He was so aware of what was happening around the world.’
They made plans to have a lunch date and though he arrived 20 minutes late, which irked her, she revealed ‘he lifted the mood with a steady stream of humor and fascinating conversation.’
The couple began dating in 2008 and he proposed to her in 2010. He whisked her away on a trip to Hawaii where she got pregnant with their son Egypt and they married that summer in Corsica.
