Crisp N' Fresh: Alicia Keys Tackles Interracial Relationships With Visual Grace

Wednesday, May 12, 2010


After a wait and a tease, Alicia Keys has released the visual for her fantastic single, "Unthinkable (I'm Ready)" and she has risen to the occasion as the visual is just as equally impressive as the Drake produced track. Keys tackles an interracial love story through the decades in a West Side Story-esque plot line, where she plays the Maria to Chad Michael Murray's Tony. It's all mapped out in a moving storyline and with the song brooding in the background, it makes the track (which is one of my favorites off of The Element of Freedom) even much more potent. Keys, as we all know, is the product of an interracial relationship, and she delivers a classy video that hits close to home, as well as gives us all something to think about in the name of love.
