We like the way Alicia Keys does birthdays. When her hubby Swizz Beatz turned 35 on September 13, she pulled out all the stops with a Coming to America themed birthday party.

With friends like La La Anthony (who, according to TheYBF.com, which first reported the story, attended high school with Swizz) Swizz’ parents, grandmom and even…wait for it…his ex-wife Mashonda in attendance, Keys turned a New York City space into Zamunda,  complete with African dancers, music and even thrones.

Who said they’ll never be royals? Click for the pics.
